Home Safety Assessment

Are you concerned that the living environment of an elderly family member or friend is no longer safe?


Age Safe Advisors provide home safety assessments designed to identify and eliminate safety hazards in the homes of older adults. When a senior chooses to live independently at home the environment must be kept safe and adapted to accommodate any functional limitations.  An advisor will come to the home and make recommendations for changes that can immediately improve the overall safety of the individual’s living environment.

The 135-point Age Safe Home Assessment includes the exterior of the home, entry areas, every room including bathrooms, bedrooms, laundry room, garage, basement, kitchen and dining room, lighting evaluation, fire safety and electrical safety. After the safety assessment is completed a summary is prepared with recommendations for safety improvements, fall prevention and suggested modifications which is reviewed with you and a copy is left.


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.
