How do I keep my loved one safe at home?

En español | You can go room by room to determine how safe it is by using the home safety checklist from AARP.

Don’t get too overwhelmed by all the suggestions. Pay special attention to the bathroom, where most falls occur. If you decide you need to do some more substantial changes that require a professional, find a contractor who is a certified aging in place specialist (CAPS). The National Association of Home Builders lists builders and contractors with this certification on its website.
