Lights: If the lighting in her kitchen is dim, replace the old overhead fixture with a bright new ceiling light, and add under—cabinet task lighting to brighten, up her kitchen countertops. Cabinets and drawers: To reduce bending or reaching, organize your kitchen cabinets and drawers so that the items you most frequently use are within comfortable reach. You can also make your cabinets and pantry easier to access by installing pullout shelves or lazy susans. And D—shaped pull—handles for the cabinets and drawers are also rec— ommended because they’re more comfortable for arthritic hands to grasp than knobs. Faucet: If you have a twist- handle kitchen faucet, replace it with an ADA compliant single handle faucet. They’re easier to use, especially for seniors with arthritis or limited hand strength. There are also kitchen faucets on the market today (like the Delta Touch20 faucet and Moon Mo— tionSense) that will turn them— selves on and offby simply touch— ing the base or moving your hand over a motion sensor. And, for safety purposes, set your hot water tank at 120 degrees to prevent possible water burns. 110 4th St. E Park River 284-7221 284-6433 For all your dinner needs!

If you’re looking to upgrade some of your appliances too, here are some different senior-friendly features you should look for when shopping. Refrigerator and freezer: Side- by—side doors work well for seniors because the frequently used items (refrigerated and frozen) can be placed at mid-shelf range for easy access. Pullout adjustable height shelves and a water/ice dispenser on the outside of door are also very convenient. Stove or cooktop: Look for one with controls in the front so you won’t have to reach over hot bum— ers to turn it off, and make sure the controls are easy to see. Flat surface electric or induction burners, or continuous grates on gas stoves are also great for sliding heavy pots and pans from one burner to the next. And ask about automatic shut off burners. Oven: Self-cleaning ovens are a plus, and consider a side-swing door model. They’re easier to get into because you don’t have to lean over a hot swing-down door. Also consider a wall—mounted oven, in— stalled at your wife’s preferred height to eliminate bending. Dishwasher: Consider a dish— washer drawer that slides in and out, and is installed on a 6 to 10- inch raised platform. These re- quire less bending to load and, un— load. Washer and dryer: Front—load washers and dryers with pedestals that raise the height 10 to 15 inch- es are also back-savers and easy to access. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Sen- ior: PO.
