For ageing senior citizens, what are the best flooring options for bedrooms and living rooms?
For ageing senior citizens, first, you must consider the following five main factors:
1. Slip resistance- non-slip resistance even when wet
2. Ease of travel- easy to move over even with a care walker or wheelchair
3. Cleaning and maintenance
4. Comfort- how it feels underfoot
5. Cushion- offers shock absorption in the event of fall.
The top consideration is comfort in the living room, and in the bedroom, ease of travel is the top one. Therefore, for the bedroom, you can use carpet. It is comfortable and protects against injury from falls. For the living room, you can use cork.
