    There are a lot of little things that can be done to make living at home for seniors easier. Putting all the things that they need within easy reach is one, making sure that there is nothing to trip over or knock over is another. Seniors must also always be able to call for help in an emergency. They should have a medical alert button, a wireless phone or a cellphone on them at all times. I think that a small cellphone deigned for seniors such as the Jitterbug or the Tracfone SVC is best. This gives them the ability to call for help wherever they are.
