Helping Seniors Age in Place

A Certified Senior Home Safety Specialist is trained to assess the living environment of older adults and make recommendations on how to improve their safety to age safely at home. We are trained certified specialists in fall prevention, personal safety, and age-related financial fraud.

Make your house a safe place

The difficulty of climbing stairs and getting out of the shower can be concerning, but there are ways to stay safe and prevent accidents at home.

Maintain your independence

As we get older, everyday tasks and home upkeep become more difficult and hazardous. Our service assists seniors in maintaining their independence and remaining in their homes for a longer period of time.

Put your mind at ease

Maintaining your home is vital to increase its value over time. Regular repairs and maintenance are necessary investments that secure your asset for the future.

We assess:

  • Cognitive capacity (i.e. dementia, Alzheimer's, etc.) – What are older individuals' limitations and compensation options?

  • What physical abilities do the more senior person(s) have? What accommodations can be made in their home to move around safely?

  • What equipment is needed to make your home safer from fires and aid in prevention and escape?

  • How secure is the living environment of the older adult in terms of the physical building?

  • What safety techniques and safeguards can protect seniors and their families from crime, exploitation, scams, and theft?

  • What equipment can be used to improve communication between older adults and their caregivers or loved ones?

  • Aging in place home modifications: What changes and equipment can make seniors' homes safer as they age?

  • As seniors age, new technologies are constantly emerging to help them and their caregivers maintain independence and safety. This includes tools and recommendations for improving their daily lives.​
     

We will provide you with a written report containing 250 points of evaluation across 75 areas of your home with recommendations.

 

When should you consider hiring a senior home safety specialist?

Ideally, hiring a Certified Senior Home Safety Specialist before you need them would be wise. Whether you or a senior loved one is planning to age in place at home or move in with a family member, it's vital to have an expert assess the living environment and make safety recommendations. These recommendations can help seniors maintain their independence and health for extended periods.
