If you’re worried about the safety of older adults who are living at home, it could be for good reason. Falls are among the leading causes of injury and death at home. Simple home modifications can reduce accidents for older adults living at home. This web seminar will outline the many ways eldercare professionals can help educate families and older adults about safeguarding their homes. Also detailed will be a home-safety checklist and affordable home fixes.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the importance of home safety;
  • Identify warning signs and potential hazards in the home; and,
  • Learn ways to help families communicate with loved ones on safety issues.


Lakelyn Hogan, MBA, is a strategic partnerships representative for Home Instead Senior Care, with a graduate certificate in Gerontology. And she is serving in her second year as the co-chair of the Nebraska State Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Dementia Care Conference.
