At Seawind Health Advocacy Group, we recognize the importance of maintaining a safe and comfortable living environment for individuals as they age or manage health challenges.

Our Home Safety and Management services are designed to assess and address potential safety hazards within your home while providing support for household management tasks.

Evaluate Safety in the Home

Ensuring the safety of your home environment is essential for preventing accidents and promoting independence and well-being. We conduct comprehensive evaluations to identify potential safety hazards within your home, including fall risks, fire hazards, and accessibility concerns. By addressing these hazards proactively, we create a safer living environment that supports your health and independence.

According to the National Institute on Aging, falls are a leading cause of injury among older adults, with over 3 million older adults treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries each year. By conducting home safety evaluations and implementing appropriate interventions, we aim to reduce the risk of falls and other accidents within the home.

Monthly Bookkeeping – Household Management

Managing household finances and day-to-day tasks can become challenging, especially for individuals with health concerns or limited mobility. Our team provides monthly bookkeeping and household management services to help you stay organized and on top of your financial responsibilities. From bill payments to budgeting assistance, we handle the administrative tasks, allowing you to focus on your health and well-being.

According to a study published in the Journal of Aging and Health, older adults who receive assistance with household management tasks report higher levels of satisfaction with their living arrangements and overall quality of life. Our monthly bookkeeping services aim to alleviate stress and streamline household management, promoting peace of mind and independence for our clients.

Why Home Safety and Management Matters

The need for assistance with everyday activities is not solely determined by age; rather, it arises from limitations in physical health, mental health, or cognitive functioning. As individuals age, they are increasingly likely to develop impairments that impact their ability to perform daily tasks independently. According to a study from Freedman and Spillman (2014a), by ages 85 to 89, more than half of older adults receive help from a family caregiver due to health problems or functional limitations.

Maintaining a safe home environment is essential for preventing accidents and promoting independence among older adults. However, as highlighted in the study by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, limitations in physical or cognitive functioning may create the need for assistance with household tasks or self-care activities. This underscores the importance of home safety assessments to identify and mitigate potential hazards within the home.

The Impact of Dementia on Home Safety Needs

Dementia presents unique challenges when it comes to home safety and management. Individuals with dementia may require constant supervision to prevent accidents or injuries, even if they can perform some self-care or household tasks. As the condition progresses, individuals with dementia may experience a wide range of co-morbidities, including limitations in vision, hearing, or mobility. These factors further underscore the importance of creating a safe and supportive home environment for individuals with dementia and their caregivers.

According to data from the National Health and Aging Trends Study (NHATS) and the National Survey of Caregivers (NSOC), dementia significantly impacts caregiving needs, with a majority of older adults who receive help with self-care classified as having probable dementia. This highlights the critical role of home safety assessments and interventions in supporting individuals with dementia and their caregivers.
