The educational video―produced by Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA) through a $25,000 grant from The Pat Summitt Foundation―offers caregivers of those with dementia simple, inexpensive options for making basic home modifications to help address problematic behavior when providing care at home.
The video chapters focus on specific areas of the home (kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, hallways and stairways), and how to make those areas safer. The final segment highlights general home safety rules. Safe at Home, A Caregiver's Guide is intended for families caring for loved ones in the middle and advanced stages of dementia.
The content in Safe at Home sets itself apart from other educational videos, having been filmed in the homes of actual caregivers with their loved ones. The material is engaging, practical and timely, considering 43.5 million adult family caregivers care for someone 50+ years of age, with 14.9 million caring for someone who has Alzheimer's disease or other dementia.
