The Home Instead Senior Care office serving Lima, Findlay, Bowling Green, Fremont and Celina is offering a free home safety checklist and other helpful tools for area seniors and their families.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 20 million seniors ages 65 and older visit the emergency room each year with almost a third of the visits related to injuries, many of which are sustained in the home. However, almost half of all home accidents by seniors (48 percent) can be avoided according to a recent survey of emergency room doctors, conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care network

"It is critical for families and seniors to invest the time in identifying the necessary home safety modifications to ensure it stays that way."
