The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that each year nearly 1 million people over age 65 are treated in hospital emergency rooms for injuries related to the products they live with and use every day. Accidental injuries in the home causes approximately three times more deaths for older people than for the younger population.
Home maintenance can become a challenge as people age or become ill. Many of the injuries to elderly persons in their homes result from hazards that are easy to fix, but are also easy to overlook. By spotting these hazards and taking some simple steps to correct them, many injuries might be prevented.
A Senior Home Inspection helps seniors "age in place" in their own home. Maintenance costs are kept down and home value is kept up by finding and alerting homeowners about necessary maintenance and safety issues. A Senior Safety Inspection also helps to determine what really needs to be repaired versus what a contractor may recommend.
If requested, for an additional fee we can test for radon gas and mold.
We encourage the homeowner and/or caregiver to be present during the inspection. Within 24 hours of the completion of the inspection, you will be provided with a digital report with pictures. Your inspection report will note the safety and maintenance issues that need to be addressed and will also make recommendations to improve the safety and integrity of your home.
