Home Care Safety Assessment

Our goal is to help seniors remain healthy at home, and the best way to do that is to first ensure that seniors’ homes are safe.

What Is the Home Care Safety Assessment?

As part of our services, we conduct a Home Care Safety Assessment. While no home can be 100% risk free, this professional assessment helps seniors and their family members address major and minor areas of concern at home.

During one of your first visits with our Caring team, we conduct a 43-point home assessment that analyzes each room in the house to identify potential hazards.

 

What Does Your Assessment Include?

SteppingDownStairsWithCane-LR-1This safety assessment addresses some of the following areas:

  • Floor surfaces
  • Windows and doors
  • Electrical outlets, switches, and alarms
  • Lighting and ventilation
  • Stairs and walkways

We also offer a handout of our Home Care Safety Assessment that you can print out and fill out yourself. This assessment is a great start to complement what our team identifies in your loved one’s home to help them safely age in place.

Some Things to Consider

One third of all seniors in the US experience a fall each year, and the majority of these falls occur in their own home. To help seniors remain safe as they age in place, it’s important to address potential risks and hazards.

The bathroom is typically the most dangerous room in a senior’s home. Only 19% of homes have grab bars. Adaptable bathrooms can help seniors safely perform everyday actions, like showering or toileting.
