Free Home Safety Inspections are Available for Seniors

Are you a senior living at home? Trained Safety for Seniors volunteers with Open Your Heart to a Senior will conduct a brief but thorough FREE home safety assessment using a written checklist and make recommendations for family members to adjust/remove potential hazards. They install smoke alarms (if needed) and leave seniors with a bag of safety items, like a flashlight and fresh batteries, a bath mat, night light and other helpful items. After the safety check has been completed, seniors qualify for either a free grab bar or an indoor railing installed at no charge. For information, please contact Cathy Pschirer 412-307-0069 ext 3313 or at North Hills Community Outreach.
