Welcome to A Family Caregiver's Home Safety Assessment Guide for Supporting Elders@Home


Caregiving at home has proven its value in offsetting the high costs of in-facility healthcare.


Make it Safe! is a compilation of safety tips & sage advice to help support an elder in aging semi-independently and safely.

It is often said "it takes a village to raise a child."

The same can be said about helping an elder age at home.

Perhaps not a village, but certainly a family.

Caregiving at home has proven its value in offsetting the high costs of in-facility healthcare, and at the same time, improving the quality of life for many elders. However, educational training and support for caregivers has been in short supply.

The focus of this book is to help you as a family caregiver create a safe living space and  conditions to support an elder living semi-independently in the community or adapting your family household to support an elder as a member of your family.
