In Home Safety Assessment

Do you have handrails installed? Is a fire extinguisher nearby in case of emergency? Professionals provide in-home safety assessments for older adults that enable them to live comfortably in a safe home environment. Home Safety Evaluations help prevent household accidents, alleviate hazards and protect the home against potential problems by recommending home improvements, modifications, and repairs. Work can range from replacing doorknobs with pull handles and adding grab bars in bathrooms to installing a wheelchair ramp or a stairglide.

Home Safety Questions to think about:
• Does your bathmat have a non-skid back?
• Is there adequate lighting around your medicine cabinet?
• Do you have nightlights in your bedroom, bathroom and hallway?
• Are all medicines clearly marked?
• Are your cleaning products stored away from food products?
• Are pot handles turned away from reach while cooking?
