Home Instead Senior Care Offers Free Home Safety Checks
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
An organization in Charlottesville is working to make homes safer for senior citizens. Home Instead Senior Care is offering free safety checks this month.
A senior care expert will come to your home to identify potential hazards. Many are as simple as moving items lower in the kitchen and installing grab bars in the bathroom.
Home Instead owner, Jeanne McCusker, stated “Home Instead Senior Care surveyed seniors as well as ER doctors. The ER physician said that almost 50 percent of ER visits could be preventable. It's really important for people to go around their house and make sure it's safe because we can avoid those actual ER trips and the resulting injuries.
For more information on the free safety checks, call Home Instead Senior Care at 434-979-4663. The group also has a Home Safety Assessment checklist to help you inspect your home.
