  • Recent research conducted by Home Instead, Inc.,franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care® network provides a compelling look at senior home safety. The survey of ER doctors, seniors and adult children reveals that home isn’t always the safe haven that seniors and their loved ones dream about.

    And adult children, their aging parents and emergency room doctors don’t always see things the same way. For one thing, 100% of ER doctors in the U.S. and Canada say it’s very important for adult children to take one day each year to perform a safety check of their aging parents’ homes. But in the last year, only 44% (41% in Canada) have done this.

    Here you’ll find helpful resources to identify hazardous areas in your senior loved one's home, ways to fix them and ways to prevent accidents from happening.
