Why You Should Donate
S.A.F.E. is a non-profit organization dedicated to the safety and quality of life for aging adults. We have provided critical safety equipment and vital education to seniors who cannot readily help themselves.
Every year, one in every three adults over the age of 65 falls. These falls are the leading cause of injury and death. Falls cause injuries including moderate to severe fractures of the hip and head traumas. According to the center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), studies reveal certain medications and prescriptions can increase the chance of falling due to drowsiness and dizziness. Lack of proper eye screening may also contribute to avoidable injuries.
Fortunately, there are a number of ways to prevent falls, such as adding safety bars, railings, and other safety measures to a senior’s home and removing household items that can be potentially dangerous to those who are prone to falling or are experiencing memory complications. With the installation of safety equipment and the proper modifications, we are confident that we can help by coupling our resources and years of experience to make for a more secure world for our beloved seniors.
How Your Donation Will Help
The proceeds from your generous donations will provide seniors with access to volunteers that are available for immediate home inspections and modification assistance. These volunteers will be able to identify safety hazards and professionally install safety equipment in the home in order to eliminate any potential issues. The safety equipment includes grab bars, stairway railings, handheld shower assists, wheelchair ramps, raised toilet seats, mobility devices and many more products that are crucial to the health and safety of seniors. If all else fails, we provide seniors with pendants in case of emergency or when falls occur when no one is around.
Helping Seniors Get the Care and Safety They Deserve
Every senior deserves to experience the benefits of aging safely in their own home. We thank all of our sponsors who have helped transform a seniors life through our support program. We rely on your donations to provide these services. Your contribution has an immediate impact on the lives of so many loved ones. Remember, we are a 501(c)(3) so your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a confirmation e-mail of your contribution.
