The Senior Home Safety Specialist™ course can be a great step at the start of a new business or to help established professionals continue to differentiate themselves from competitors.

Why this course?

We are coming into a senior population explosion that is unprecedented in history. We will need an army of educated and compassionate advocates to assist them with dignity and integrity. Age Safe® America will help train, empower and support this army.” – Steven Bailey Founder/Managing Director, Age Safe America

In a recent report the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development called on the public and private sector for greater action to reduce accidental and preventable injuries to seniors in the home.

  • 1/3 of adults age 65 years or older fall each year; the majority of these falls occur in and around the home.
  • Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries and fractures for older adults.
  • Falls often result in seniors being institutionalized, losing their functional independence, and/or developing a paralyzing fear of falling.
  • Fall related mortality increases with age; and when someone over the age of 80 falls, they have a 50% chance they will ever regain their former independence.
  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall.
  • Every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
  • Falls account for 25% of all hospital admissions and 40% of all nursing home admissions.
  • Moreover, once a fall occurs studies show that seniors are two to three times more likely to fall again.
