Light for Safety:
These days the market is filled with lights with activated motion sensor, and you should incorporate them in the home decor so that the senior person can find his/her way from bedroom to the bathroom, for instance. Have these lights installed in the hallway, down the stars to the drawing or even in the bathroom. It will throw sufficient light for clear visibility at night and will also keep your loved one from falling or slipping. The best part is that the lights are easily available and easily affordable.

Fast and Easy Communication:
Easy and fast way of communication for elderly people is of utmost importance, especially during the night. You can opt for pre-programming a cell phone with all the ‘emergency’ contact numbers, and if the concerned elderly cannot use the phone, you should think of installing a ‘home monitoring system’ which will ensure that the elderly person can access the emergency assistance by only pushing a button.
The Incontinence Problem:
The incontinence problem is a major area of concern for elderlies. In order to manage this sensitive issue efficiently at night time, you will have to make sure that the aging senior is provided with ‘overnight adult diaper’ or extra absorbents or any other incontinence item.
