When people hear about Age Safe® they think Safety, Security, Independence, Freedom, Confidence and Peace of Mind. Age Safe® provides education and solutions for senior home safety, fall prevention, fire safety, crime prevention and identity theft. Everything to allow older adults to “age safe at home”.
Senior Home Safety and Crime Prevention:
Falls are the leading cause of death due to injury for those over 65. Falls account for 25% of all hospital admissions and 40% of all nursing home admissions. Almost 90% of older Americans say they want to age-in-place (to stay in their own home instead of some sort of assisted living), yet 85% have done nothing to prepare their homes for aging. Crime prevention as it pertains to seniors runs the gamut from elder abuse, fraud and financial exploitation to home security, identity theft and personal safety.
We are committed to education and the prevention of injury and exploitation of seniors.
“The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the bald eagle as the emblem of our nation. The fierce beauty and proud independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom of America.”
– President John F. Kennedy
