Home Safety Checklists


AARP’s Home Safety Checklist can help you identify and address various hazards around your home. Every year in the United States, nearly one-third of people age-65+ experience a fall.

More than half of all fall injuries among older people occur inside the home, and an additional 23 percent happen outside, but near the home.
