Where The Needs Of Others Come First · Available 24x7 For Emergencies
Over at the AgeWiseLiving Blog, Barbara E. Friesner, Generational Coach has a very helpful article on lighting considerations for Seniors’ homes. Barbara makes several excellent points, including this:
Install good, shadow free, lighting on all stairways. Put a light switch at the top and bottom of each staircase. Make sure there are no shadows and that the light is bright enough to light the whole staircase –even when someone is on it. One way to do this is to put rope lights under the railings and/or banisters. You’ll also want to be careful of stairs that end in a window as it might create too much glare at the landing.
