Things You Can Do to Reduce Your Fall Risk

Schedule a Comprehensive Home Safety Assessment

Performed by a Certified Senior Home Safety Specialist™

What to Expect

Typically an assessment takes approximately 60-90 minutes. It’s always best if you or a family member can accompany the Advisor on the home safety assessment, as you or they can ask questions about specific safety items as they come up.

What’s Included

The 240-point Comprehensive Home Safety Assessment is performed by a trained advisor and includes the exterior of the home, all entry areas, every room including bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry room, garage, basement, kitchen and dining room, lighting evaluation, fire safety and electrical safety.

Afterwards a complete summary is prepared with recommendations for fall prevention and home safety. If necessary modifications are suggested, the advisor will be able to confidently refer pre-screened and vetted providers in your area.

Assessment Fee

The cost is between $199-$399 depending on the size of the home and your location.

Falls and subsequent injury are a health and financial burden on older persons and their families, as well as a financial burden on the healthcare system. A Home Safety Assessment along with some low-cost modifications can serve to effectively reduce falls and fall injury in older adults.

Simple, Affordable and Effective Fall Prevention

A comprehensive Home Safety Assessment can pay for itself by avoiding the high cost of injury or assisted living.
