The Olmsted County Falls Prevention Coalition offers a complete home safety visit to assess fall risks in the home.
Trained volunteers schedule a time to meet with you in your home to complete a safety visit. They provide you with recommendations and resources to increase safety, reduce falls extend independent living.
This is a free service for residents of Olmsted County.
Volunteering for Home Safety Checks does require training. Use our online portal to register as a volunteer and to become a member of our Home Safety Corps. You will be contacted when the next Corps training is scheduled. Training is available twice a year.
Today, Americans are living longer while staying active and healthy. However, as people age, they become more prone to falls leading to injury, loss of independence, and fear of falling again. The good news is that falls are preventable, and aging does not cause them. Because most falls occur at home, a home safety corps volunteer can help older adults improve their safety at home by identifying risk factors and making safety recommendations. A corps of trained Home Safety Corps Volunteers deliver this service across Olmsted County. Must be 18+ years of age.
