Helping seniors stay safe in their own home is vital to their mental, physical and emotional well-being. Nine out ten seniors over the age of 65 wants to "age in place" by living independently in the comfort of their own home for as long as possible. But the truth is, as seniors age they are at a higher risk of accidents, as their balance, eyesight and flexibility are reduced. As a result, each year one in three will experience a serious fall, some life altering or even fatal. With just some basic modifications, injuries can largely be prevented allowing them to live safely amongst familiar surroundings in the comfort of their own home. Many of the recommended modifications can be made for little to no cost.

Our goal is to mitigate all hazards before they become problems, so senior adults can maintain their integrity, as well as quality of life and independence.
