Between hot dishes and hard tile floors, the kitchen can be one of the most dangerous rooms in the house. But with a few savvy tips and an assistive device from EZ Care Medical, everyone can enjoy the feeling of safety and security while cooking in the kitchen.
Keep reading for EZ Care Medical’s top three kitchen tips:
- Be Careful With Heavy Items: Items in the kitchen, like pots on the stove, are often heavier than they seem, so take extreme care when lifting items out of the oven or off of the stove. Pots of boiling water, especially, are extremely heavy and can cause serious injury if dropped.
- Look Into Assistive Devices: An assistive device such as EZ Care Medical’s over-the-stove mirror is the perfect solution to keep you feeling safe and independent in the kitchen. This simple acrylic device attaches to the wall with a single screw and angles downward to allow you to see your stovetop from above. Perfect for people of small stature or in wheelchairs, it’s also easily adjustable for any height. See the product page at EZ Medical Care for specifications and pricing information.
- Listen To Your Limits: Never push yourself beyond your limits while you’re cooking in the kitchen. Try to stay in tune with your body, so you can sense when you are getting overtired or overheated and need to leave the kitchen to take a rest.
