The Benefits of Having a Professional Home Safety Evaluation

As you begin your search for childproofing or “aging in place” items to help you transition to a safer home environment, making a purchase decision is not always easy. Many products look useful, but may not be the best solution for your unique home. With the numerous options advertised for childproofing and aging-in-place, it can be difficult to know which products are worth buying.

This is where your experts at Home Safe Homes can lend a hand.

Home Safe Homes has been performing Home Safety Evaluations since it opened in 2001. We’re members of the International Association for Child Safety and have been childproofing homes since opening. As our business grew some of our staff became Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists, and we’ve been performing accessibility remodeling since 2009. Our team has the experience and knowledge to back up our product recommendations.  Their expertise allows them to perform installations efficiently and securely. At Home Safe Homes our goal is to give our clients peace of mind, by helping them improve their homes’ safety and accessibility.

When Home Safe Homes performs a Home Safety Evaluation, the team member assigned to you will accompany you room-by-room to evaluate your living space and learn about your daily routines and needs. They will then recommend items that can best improve your home safety, and inform you of the cost of the products and their installation. If you aren’t interested in everything they recommend, the price can be adjusted to include only the services you choose to pursue.

We provide a quick turn-around from the time the evaluation is performed to when we are able to install the products you have selected.

 

If you are interested in childproofing or aging-in-place, call Home Safe Homes at (317) 773 – 1996 to set up an appointment for a Home Safety Evaluation today!

Home Safe Homes Installs a Variety of Stairlifts

Is your staircase an obstacle in your home? A stair lift can provide accessibility between the floors in your family home and offer you complete independence despite reduced mobility due to age, disease or injury. Home Safe Homes offers product sourcing as well as the installation of stairlifts including straight stair lifts, custom curved stair lifts, heavy duty stair lifts, or outdoor stair lifts. We offer different models and can customize the one that meets your individual needs.

Below we have compiled a list the features that all Handicare stairlifts have in common, and then divided the additional features into lists placed under the name of the model they are offered with.

Customized Heavy Duty Stair lift

Learn How From a Home Safe Homes Client

Stair Lift on Ground FloorKnee and joint issues were causing pain as our client climbed and descended the stairs. It was becoming so bothersome that he started looking at his options. Either stay in the home he loves and add safety equipment to make maneuvering around his home easier, or move to a retirement facility. He decided he wasn’t ready to lose his independence and started searching for safety equipment online. His main priority was to install a stair lift. He went to a source he knew he could trust and that’s when he found our profile on Angie’s List.

Rails on the stairsWe provided a home assessment and took note of the additional features he wanted in his stair lift. Together we decided on a Harmar heavy-duty stair lift with the addition of a swivel seat. He is still using his stair lift today and continues to enjoy his independence as he ages in place.

 

 “Everything went very well. Kent McCool was very professional and reassuring. The price and quality was great. We also received a fantastic discount for being an Angie’s List member.”
