Topics within Senior Safety

Nearly 90 percent of seniors say they want to stay in their home. Doing so gives them a wonderful sense of continued independence.

If you feel like this, you're not alone. In 2007 the AARP surveyed boomer women and found that two-thirds are concerned about their parents' ability to live independently.
