-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
THE HOLIDAY-SEASON MAY BE A GOOD TIME TO CHECK ON OLDER RELATIVES--IN ORDER TO HELP THEM REMAIN HAPPY, COMFORTABLE, AND SECURE, IN THEIR OWN HOME.  THAT'S ACCORDING TO CANDI WILLIAMS--A-A-R-P ALABAMA'S STATE-DIRECTOR...

(WILLIAMS):
"
SINCE TIME CAN PASS IN BETWEEN VISITS WITH FAMILY, THE HOLIDAYS CAN PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASSESS YOUR LOVED-ONES' WELL-BEING.  FOR EXAMPLE, YOU MAY WITNESS--OR HEAR FROM RELATIVES--THAT MOM OR DAD'S DRIVING ISN'T UP TO PAR.  YOU MAY ALSO WANT TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO KEEP A MEDICATION-RECORD--SO THAT THEY CAN LESSEN THEIR CHANCES OF MAKING POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS MISTAKES, WHEN TAKING PRESCRIPTION-DRUGS.  IN ADDITION, YOU SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR SOME SIMPLE FIXES THAT CAN IMPROVE THEIR HOME'S SAFETY--LIKE GETTING RID OF TRIPPING-HAZARDS, SUCH AS THROW-RUGS AND ELECTRICAL CORDS.  AND, IF THERE ISN'T ALREADY AN ENTRANCE THAT'S STEP-FREE, YOU MAY WANT TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO GET A RAMP AND RAILING INSTALLED."
