Home Adjustments After a Stroke

There are a number of ways to adjust your home after you’ve had a stroke; some are quite simple. So, even if a stroke affects how you function, you can still feel at home again. This guide provides a number of tips to make every room in the house easier and safer to enjoy.

Some Tips Include:

  • Use a non-slip pad or damp cloth under a dinner plate to keep it from sliding
  • Mark bathtub faucets with coloured tape to set the right temperature every time
  • Keep a flashlight by your bed in case you need to get up at night
  • Add Velcro fasteners to clothing rather than have to fumble with buttons
  • Label food containers so that you identify them easily
