Home Safety


For many, a childhood home evokes memories of a safe haven. Perhaps you felt loved, protected, and secure there. But, as your parents age, you may begin looking at the home of your youth through different eyes.

Your mom's favorite rug? She tripped over it last week and nearly fell.

That deep bathtub you used to love to soak in? Dad can't get into it anymore.

And, you've begun to worry that your mom's forgetfulness will put her at risk in the kitchen as she continues to prepare family favorites for holiday gatherings.

A critical eye and a little forethought could help avert many of the dangers and hazards you are seeing at your parent's home.

Our home safety checklist explores nine areas of the home with an eye toward senior safety. The checklist can assist you in assessing the whole home including the basement and yard.

Download the checklist here: Home Safety Checklist (CA) .
