As people age, the homes that were once a source of security can become a danger. Many seniors would much prefer to stay in their own home. This means we must make changes to their surroundings in order to keep them safe. Essentially, it is called elderproofing your home.

During Patient Safety Awareness Week, we are proud to present our latest in a series of tools to help manage and provide a safe space for seniors, Elderproofing Your Home Checklist. In it you will find dozens of potential pitfalls and areas to lookout for in terms of elderproofing as seniors age-in-place.
