Home safety checks for seniors available

DeKALB – The Home Instead Senior Care in DeKalb is offering free home safety checks for seniors as part of National Safety Month.

Local senior care experts are conducting the safety checks. Safety experts recommend that adult children of seniors take at least one day each year to perform a thorough safety check of their parents’ home, according to a news release.

A Home Instead Senior Care network survey of emergency room doctors found 48 percent of all senior home accidents can be avoided, the release states.

To request a free home safety check or the home safety checklist, call 815-754-1300. For more information, visit www.makinghomesaferforseniors.com.
