Amy Young is a licensed occupational therapist who has worked with seniors for more than 20 years. She is a Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist from the National Association of Home Builders, and has specialty certifications in Home Modifications from the American Occupational Therapy Association and in Geriatrics from the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. During her early career working in hospitals and nursing homes, she found that many people lost their ability to live at home because of a fall that was preventable. Amy founded HomeSafe for Seniors to enable older adults to age safely in their own homes by modifying the environment and by utilizing adaptive equipment to decrease fall risks and promote independence.
HomeSafe for Seniors addresses the leading cause of hospital and nursing home admissions: falls.
HomeSafe for Seniors identifies the multiple personal and environmental safety issues that contribute to falls in the home. All interventions are individualized and are designed to maximize the safety, self-confidence and independence of seniors choosing to age in their own homes.
