Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

June 2017
Summer is here!
If you are like us at Home Healthsmith, we are very happy to see the summer weather upon us.  As you start to get outside and plant your gardens and work in the yard, remember to fall proof your yard.  This is important to do as it will lower the risk of seniors fallings and sustaining serious injuries in their yards and/or gardens.  While it has become widely known that senior proofing the house minimizes the chances of falls in the elderly, many people forget that it's also paramount to ensure that they stay safe outdoors.

We are here to help!

Learn How to Remodel Your Home 
to Remain in your Home

Wednesday, August 16th at 10:00-11:30am
RI Kitchen & Bath

Are you a retired Boomer or approaching retirement and interested in learning how to modify your home to "age in place"? This trend, known as "aging in place," is an alternative to downsizing or moving to a condo in warmer climate. 

Our experts will teach you how to tastefully and easily make your surroundings easier to manage and safer as you grow older. From replacing bathtubs, installing safety rails, or widening  doors - our Director of Design, Prudence Stoddard, CKD, CAPS, UDCP will discuss the principles and importance of Universal Design, while showcasing specific products and appliances that are being used today. 

In additon, Linda Bohmbach, ECHMP, Co-Founder and Vice President of Home HealthSmith will join us to review various types of accessibility equipment available for your living room and/or bedroom including ceiling lifts and various types of transfer aids for those with limited mobility.
Pre-registration is required, space limited. 
This event is complimentary, however we will be accepting donations 
for the Rhode Island Community Food Bank.
