Safe at Home Program
The Safe at Home Program aims to assist older adults in remaining safe in their homes by providing access to and the installation of assistive safety devices such as grab bars, hand railings, and durable medical equipment. Prior to installation, our Outreach Workers will provide you with an in-home safety assessment to help determine what needs you may have.
This program will provide assistance to low income individuals - 200% of the federal poverty guidelines or below - with the purchase and installation of assistive devices, such as grab bars and hand railings. Services are prioritized according to financial need, however those with higher income may qualify for some aspects of the program. Please call 216-291-3902 for an application or more information.
