Another point to consider is outdoor lighting for security. Be sure to provide plenty of light at all entrances and exits. These lights should also be on a timer or photocell so that they are on when needed. Someone may leave expecting to be home before dark and get delayed.

Outside light fixtures are also a good choice unless you live in an area whererepparttar 140555 temperature gets below freezing a lot. Another place for fluorescent fixtures are closets, which can be extremely dark for an elderly person. The key points to remember are to make sure all areas are adequately illuminated and use fixtures that require a minimum of maintenance.
