Probably, you aren’t putting senior decluttering on your list when you plan your major aging in place home renovations and renovation projects. But clutter can pose a safety risk in an aging-in place home.
Decluttering has the obvious benefit that it removes tripping hazards. A home for the elderly should not only provide safety but also take care of a senior’s mental health. No matter what age, clutter can reduce anxiety and stress. Clear countertops, tables, and floors make it easier to keep your house clean. Adults who are aging in place will reap the many benefits of clearing out clutter from their homes.
