Falls are one of the biggest threats to the safety and independence of seniors who hope to age in the comfort of their own home. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries for older Americans, according to the National Council on Aging. The good news is that falls are largely preventable and Visiting Nurses’ Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Certified Senior Home Safety Specialists are the perfect people to help. Using their expertise, VNA’s OTs can conduct a Home Safety Evaluation to identify threats and areas of concern to the health and safety of an older adult. They can then provide specific recommendations to make the home safer. With the one-time payment of $150, you'll get a comprehensive 64 point evaluation and report addressing areas of concern and recommendations for improvements.
