Fall Prevention Home Inspections
Find peace of mind for yourself or a loved one by scheduling a free home inspection for potential fall hazards, a service coordinated by Genesis HealthCare System.
Through a grant from the Ohio Older Adult Falls Prevention Coalition of the Ohio Injury Prevention Partnership, Genesis staff teams up with the Emergency Medical Advisory Council (EMSAC) and local emergency medical service (EMS) and fire departments to help you stay safe in your home.
What to Expect & How You Benefit
During the inspection, first responders from local emergency medical services and fire departments walk through your or your loved one’s home, assessing potential fall hazards like loose rugs, raised thresholds, poor lighting and more.
After the completed inspection, you receive a report outlining safety and maintenance issues you’ll want to address as soon as possible.
With a home inspection, you’re eligible to receive—free of charge—one nightlight or one grab bar installation. A grab bar installation is available for any home with at least one person age 65 or older.
How to Schedule
If you or someone you know could benefit from a fall prevention home inspection, contact your local EMS or fire department.
