Home Security Tips for Seniors

As the population of senior citizens rises, so does the number of senior citizens living independently in their homes. Seniors are especially vulnerable to crime and other threats. Here are some tips to keep seniors safe and help prevent theft and vandalism.

Install security lighting. A well-lit perimeter around the outside of the house is an excellent way to deter unwanted visitors. Security lighting should be installed at all entrances around the house, including outside the garage. Lighting offers the additional benefit of helping the homeowner see better when arriving home when itís dark outside.

Install quality locks on all exterior doors and windows. For seniors, itís important to keep exterior doors locked even while they are in the home. Shop online to find locks recommended by police or safety experts. In case of a break in, a locked door may deter a thief altogether or at least give the homeowner a few extra seconds to call 9-1-1. All glass doors, especially those on the back of the house or in the basement, should be replaced with wood doors. If there are glass doors that can't be replaced, covering them with security film or Plexiglass will make them more difficult to break. Give an extra set of keys to a trusted family member, friend or neighbor in case of a medical emergency when the homeowner is unable to unlock the door.

Purchase a security alarm system. There are many options available when it comes to security alarm systems. Alarm systems vary greatly in number of options available and price. Seniors may want to contract with a security system monitoring service. A monitoring service can call for assistance in the event of a fire or other medical emergency. Shop around and be sure to compare systems online. Family members may want to help research this purchase. Many of today's systems also allow for video monitoring. This may be a desirable feature, especially if there are special concerns regarding the seniorís safety and well-being. Look online for systems that cater to the needs of seniors.

Install a viewer window, peep hole or door entry phone in the front door. This allows the senior to see who is outside the front door without having to open it first.

Ask for help from family members and neighbors: Having family members and neighbors visit or come help with chores such as mowing the lawn shows activity around the home. Burglars and vandals are less likely to be interested in a home in which there is activity and lots of people around.

As the largest portion of the population ages, there are more products on the market geared toward seniors. Be sure to look online for more home security products to keep seniors safe at home.
