Simple home modifications can reduce accidents for older adults living at home. This webinar will outline the many ways that senior care professionals can help educate families about how to safeguard older adults living at home. A home safety checklist and affordable home fixes will also be detailed.

  • Understand the importance of home safety;
  • Identify warning signs and potential dangers in the home; and,
  • List simple ways and resources to make a home safer
