According to AARP 89% of older Americans “want to remain in their home and community for as long as possible.” The problem is that most existing homes “have structural barriers that can make it difficult for older adults and people with physical limitations to address their daily needs without assistance.”

These structural barriers often lead to older Americans falling, which forces them to leave their homes.

The CDC reports that “more than one out of four older people falls each year, but less than half tell their doctor.”

If you want to stay at home safely, you need someone who can provide a research based fall prevention program and realistic home modification recommendation through a detailed home assessment.
