Tip: How to help Prevent a House Break-In
Conquering the Basics
Believe it or not, many burglaries are committed through an unlocked door. Burglars will often walk right in with ease and immediately damage the sense of well-being in your home. The easiest thing to do to prevent break ins is make sure that all doors in your home are locked. Simple oversights like this cause families to lose countless dollars in stolen property and their precious peace of mind.
Your front door isn’t the only vulnerable spot in your house. The garage door is your home’s biggest door, so don’t leave it exposed. Make sure to install a garage door control. There are now controls you can install to open and close your garage doors remotely from a smartphone, tablet, or computer, so you never have to worry about leaving the biggest door to your home open.
Basement doors, pet doors, and the windows in your home need some attention, too. Check to make sure all areas of entry into your home are secured and locked sufficiently. Most burglaries happen during the day, so take extra care before you leave for work or vacation. Some burglars have also said that leaving a TV on or radio deterred them from entering, as they couldn’t tell if someone was home or not.
While it may seem obvious to simply keep all of your doors locked at all times (even if you are home), you can take this a step further by choosing a home security system from a respected security company like ADT to help prevent break ins.
Home Security Is a Must
While step one is to make sure all your windows and doors are locked whenever possible, this still won’t prevent the more persistent intruders who will stop at nothing to get in your home. Thankfully, today’s home security systems are powerful, intuitive, and easy for the whole household to use.
Thieves aren’t so lucky these days with all the advances in home security and automation. You can now install a system that protects your home, and prevent break-ins from the elements—anything life throws at you. Set your security system remotely and put your mind at ease with automatic locks, a security system that monitors every move, and video surveillance that you can access from anywhere. Your home’s security is always in your control.
Tip: A few ways to help older Americans be safe in their home
They say America is aging and statistics show that to be true. By 2050, the number of Americans over 65 years of age will reach 88.5 million. That’s twice the number in 2010, meaning in just 40 years, our country’s older population will double.
As our population ages, we are most of us likely to fall into one of two categories: the “older adults” who want to stay independent, and the children of those older adults who are trying to support their parents in their independence.
We’ve written about keeping seniors safely living on their own before, in our blog post called Keeping Seniors Safe: 6 Tips to Keep Your Parents Independent Longer. In that post, we talked about ways to make sure the kitchen and bathroom are safe, coaching our elderly relatives on safe social media usage, ensuring the lighting is good, and installing a home security system.
We’ve also written about how a home automation system can help senior citizens to stay in their homes.
In this post, we build on that previous advice to add three more nuggets that have come to our attention with additional research into keeping seniors safe when living alone.
Prevent falls when you put things within easy reach
I’m not yet an older adult, but I still make my husband cringe when I stand on a chair or jump up in the air to reach a bowl on a top shelf. In his mind, his accident-prone wife is only asking for an injury, and he’s right. For our older parents and relatives, it’s imperative that they can reach what they need to decrease the chance of a fall. I’m not suggesting your 77-year-old mother will climb on a chair, but you never know. Mine would! (Maybe that’s where I get it?) Those things they are likely to need should be easy to reach, neither too high nor too low.
Have groceries delivered to cut down on driving
Driving is one act of independence older adults really struggle to give up, it seems. And perhaps they still drive just fine, but their reaction times have slowed and the drivers around them don’t know it, putting everyone at risk. Statistics show older drivers tend to be in more accidents. If you can have groceries delivered, you can cut down on the driving—plus the chances of a fall in a grocery store or parking lot. (If you need guidance in talking to an older relative about driving, the National Highway Traffic Safety Association offers excellent advice.)
Make sure they are getting social interaction while staying safe online
Speaking of driving, once seniors either drive less or stop driving, their degree of social interaction can decrease significantly, leading to loneliness and depression. Some older adults will turn to social media for interaction. If that’s the case, make sure you go over safety guidelines with them. Talk to them about passwords, identity theft and safe social media usage. Then be sure they are getting real-life interaction as well, through activities and family time. Yes, you’re busy. But this is part of keeping older relatives safe, because seniors living in isolation have a higher mortality rate.
With the population of Americans over age 65 doubling in just 40 years, chances are we will either be in that group or taking care of that group. Knowing ahead of time how to help ourselves or others to stay safe later in life while still enjoying our independence can be a huge help in preventing accidents and their long-term consequences—that make independence
