Mr. Handyman of Midwest Collin County Earns Senior Home Safety Specialist® Designation from Age Safe® America
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
McKinney, TX, September 15, 2023 – Cindy Parks-Talley, of Mr. Handyman of Midwest Collin County, is now one of a select group of professionals nationwide to earn the Senior Home Safety Specialist® designation, identifying her as having obtained the knowledge necessary to help educate older adults and family members on the serious issues of home safety, fall prevention, personal safety and financial exploitation.
This comprehensive course offers the only designation of its kind to individuals in the senior services industry. Senior Home Safety Specialist® graduates include a myriad of providers involved in the care, comfort, safety, and security of older adults, including occupational/physical therapists, home care providers, aging-in-place professionals, handyman services, contractors, remodelers, home inspectors, senior living staff, EMS professionals, care managers, caregivers and many others committed to assisting seniors in staying safe in the homes they love.
Approximately one-third of adults aged 65 years or older fall in their homes each year, resulting in injury, long-term disability and premature loss of independence. By 2030, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated the cost related to these kinds of injuries to be over $100 Billion a year. In an effort to help reduce and prevent falls and their associated costs, Age Safe America developed this program as a way to help professionals educate older adults and families to make preparations now to ensure ongoing freedom and independence for all.
