Home Safety Checklist

.

Each year, thousands of older Americans ​fall at home. Many of them are seriously injured and some are disabled. Falls are often due to hazards that are easy to overlook but many times, easy to fix.  Interim HealthCare has developed a checklist that can be used to help you find and fix hazards in your home.  

Check off each item that describes the situation in your home. Some items may not relate to your home so you can disregard them. For example, if you have a single story home items related to stairs should be eliminated since they don't apply to you. Each item that gets no checkmark represents a potential hazard. We encourage you to print this checklist and use it in your home to prevent unnecessary falls that could lead to serious injuries.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
