Are you concerned that the living environment of an elderly family member or friend is no longer safe?
Age Safe Advisors provide home safety assessments designed to identify and eliminate safety hazards in the homes of older adults. When a senior chooses to live independently at home the environment must be kept safe and adapted to accommodate any functional limitations. An advisor will come to the home and make recommendations for changes that can immediately improve the overall safety of the individual’s living environment.
The 240-point Age Safe Home Assessment includes the exterior of the home, entry areas, every room including bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry room, garage, basement, kitchen and dining room, lighting evaluation, fire safety and electrical safety. After the safety assessment is completed a summary is prepared with recommendations for safety improvements, fall prevention and suggested modifications which is reviewed with you and a copy is left.
5 Simple Things You Can Do to Reduce Your Fall Risk:
- Begin a regular exercise program.
- Review your medicines regularly.
- Have your vision checked annually.
- Wear sturdy, nonskid shoes at all times.
- Make your home environment safer.
100% of ER doctors agree that an annual Home Safety Assessment is important to keep seniors safe at home.
A comprehensive Home Safety Assessment can pay for itself by avoiding the high cost of injury or assisted living.
