One extra feature to ensure you thrive safely and independently in your home is through Landis at Home’s home safety assessments. This is an important way to identify potential dangers that you may not see or realize.
Our Occupational Therapists will come to your home and assess the environment for hazards that can be eliminated. We can make recommendations that help you stay safe in your home or to make your home more accessible. Areas of concern we address include lighting, fall hazards and the need for equipment such as grab bars or safety rails.
Being proactive with this is key to providing safety at home for seniors. Falls are one of the most common sources of injury. According to the National Council on Aging, one in four Americans age 65 and older falls every year, and falls are the number one cause of injury-related death for older adults.
