Free home safety inspections
Trained Safety for Seniors volunteers with Open Your Heart to a Senior will conduct a brief but thorough free home safety assessment using a written checklist making recommendations for family members to adjust/remove potential hazards. They install smoke alarms (if needed) and leave seniors with a bag of safety items, including a flashlight and fresh batteries, a bath mat, night light and other helpful items. After the check has been completed, seniors qualify for either a free grab bar or an indoor railing installed at no charge. For information, contact Cathy Pschirer at North Hills Community Outreach at 412-307-0069 ext. 3313 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
