What is Safe at Home?

The Safe at Home program provides no-cost preventive home modifications to people with mobility issues and other disabilities to improve accessibility, reduce falls, increase independence and facilitate aging in place. Safe at Home is also designed to improve aging-in-place outcomes for low-income older adults through the modification of their home environment to meet their specific needs.

What types of repairs does Safe at Home Provide?

  • Installing grab bars, handrails, vertical rails

  • Entry and threshold ramps, low– rise steps

  • Widening doorways and passageways

  • Modified tubs and showers, raised toilets

  • Modified kitchens, lowered counter tops, accessible appliances

  • Removing tripping hazards

Most homes are not built with handicap access. Jason and his mother Linda are both wheelchair-bound. Below is a photo of their kitchen before RTCFL Safe at Home repairs. The knobs on the stove are above the burners, the countertop is too high for a person who is seated. When applying Jason expressed the trouble he had just trying to make a sandwich.

The Safe at Home program provided accessibility modifications to the kitchen and home. In the kitchen, the countertops were lowered to a reachable height, the range was replaced so that the burners could be turned on and off safely without the ability to stand. Throughout the home, doorways were widened to fit the width of the wheelchair, providing mobility to the home. Safe at Home restored independence to Jason and Linda, who can now both age in place gracefully.
