Free Home Safety Check, Home Repair
Safety for Seniors, a service offered by Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers (IVC).
IVC is a program of Family Services of Western Pennsylvania. Through Safety for Seniors, adults age 60 and older living in Allegheny County can receive free home safety checks.
The Safety for Seniors program has three levels of service:
Tier One - Trained volunteers conduct a brief but thorough home safety assessment using a written checklist. They install smoke alarms and nightlights and provide baking soda, a bath mat, and a flashlight along with some basic home safety information.
Tier Two - A professional contractor assigned by IVC completes minor safety modifications recommended by the volunteers in the initial assessment. Generally, this level of service entails installation of grab bars or hand rails.
Tier Three - IVC identifies outside service providers that can complete major home repair/modifications recommended in the Tier One needs assessment. IVC staff will assist clients in determining their eligibility for home repair programs and applying for them.

Caring for our seniors should be our way of life as we will also become seniors in later years and will gain the same respect that we shower on the seniors now.
