We will begin accepting applications to our long-awaited Safe at Home Program on April 15th. Applications are available here or from one of our office locations.
The program offers older adult homeowners in member cities access to both durable medical equipment and dollars that will enable those of lower income or face other barriers to apply for and receive tools and equipment that will assist in adapting their homes for comfort and safety. The tools and equipment may include (but are not limited to): grab bars for showers, baths and other transitional areas; transition strips; motion detector lights; carpet stretching; light bulbs; flashlights; batteries; radios; shower chairs; hand-held shower faucets and more; hand rails; and other items determined to be needed.
The Safe At Home Program will be administered by a Community Partnership on Aging Social Worker and will include a home assessment as well as an application with income and asset verification.
