Home Safety

At times, our clients prefer to age in place or, later in the planning process, determine that selling the home is not the best option.

When this happens, Rancho Family Aging Services is still here to help.  One of the main services for those who decide to age in place, is our home safety analysis.  This process helps seniors and their families to better understand the risks that exist at home.  Our goal is to ensure your loved one can age safely at home.  We do this by going through our 240-point inspection to determine what risks exist in the home and what modifications can mitigate that risk.
