Free Pre/ Post Home Safety Assessment
How a home safety assessment prevents injuries:
A Quality In Home Care home safety assessment is an evaluation of your home to identify and eliminate potential hazards. It’s usually performed by a licensed health-care professional, or our agency medical social worker. The home safety assessment may also include home improvement recommendations to help you navigate your environment more securely, such as installing handrails in the bathroom or making sure your house has adequate lighting.
An elderly home safety assessment can be an important preventive measure, especially because falls are one of the most common sources of injury among seniors. According to the National Council on Aging, one in four Americans age 65 and older falls every year, and falls are the number one cause of injury-related death for older adults.
