Aging Well Center’s SAFEhome Program to Help Older Adults Age in Place

CLEARWATER, Fla. – The City of Clearwater’s Aging Well Center, 1501 N. Belcher Road, is partnering with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs to host a Tuesday, March 19, 1 p.m. program called SAFEhome on ways older adults can remain in their homes as long as they choose.

The presentation will be on home-related safety tips, design and sizing features, products to enhance safety and accessibility at home, and how to locate qualified consultants and vendors who can help with home modifications needed to ensure comfort and quality of life.

The program name is an acronym: SAFEhome, which stands for Safe, Accessible, Functional Environment. It supports the premise of a recent AARP survey showing 90 percent of respondents would like to remain in their homes as they age.

Pre-registration for the event is recommended. For more information, please call (727) 724-3070 or visit www.myclearwater.com/agingwell.com.
