Aging-in-Place Safe-at-Home Checklist Mobile App
The Aging-in-Place Safe-at-Home Checklist Mobile App was developed to help identify home safety, fall hazards, and accessibility issues for homeowners and their family members.
How does it work?
Additionally, builders and owners can use this handy checklist when constructing homes for the elderly population.
Safety for elderly is very important. You can save lives just by simply following and implementing checklists such as this one. By paying attention to details surrounding entrances, storage spaces, windows, electrical outlets, and more, you can prevent injuries and falls. This may include adding in walk-in baths, a walk-in shower, walk-in tubs, grab bars, non-skid mats, shower chairs and bath lifts in the bathroom area. Or, it could entail adding in stair lifts, and having step stools and other assistive devices and assistive technology available if needed. Both builders and homeowners need to be mindful of these things in order to make sure older people have everything they need to get through the day smoothly and reduce the risks of accidents.
This app is fully customizable so it can be tailored to include ADA standards for accessible design or whatever other additions you would like to add to the checklist template. Furthermore, the app can be accessed by any desktop or mobile device, which is great for walk-throughs. Just pull it up on your mobile device and check off the list items as you come across them in person.
