NY Times: Making Homes Safer for Dementia Patients

The Visiting Nurse Service of New York has come up with a checklist for making homes safer for Alzheimer and dementia patients, which was highlighted in “The New Old Age: Caring and Coping” blog in the NY Times.

According to the blog, the list was complied by Cathy Castronova, a registered nurse and case manager with the service’s affiliate, Partners in Care, who assesses the homes of older people for safety and has taught numerous classes on helping seniors remain safe at home.
