An integral part of the Seniors Safety program is visiting with seniors in their residences to talk to them about their personal safety concerns. If issues arise that can’t be addressed by the coordinator, we will make referrals to the appropriate service. Following up on referrals from police, allied professionals, community members and seniors themselves, the coordinator visits seniors in their homes to address their concerns and safety issues. Through home visits we offer support and advocacy for vulnerable seniors, information and referrals to address a variety of concerns, and support to resolve difficult personal issues. Home visits are a key service for vulnerable and isolated seniors, and particularly important for those seniors struggling with mental health issues. We hope seniors feel safer in their own homes, feel respected and valued, receive valuable information and/or services to address specific problems, and learn how to keep themselves and their homes safe. For many seniors, the home visit is the first step towards addressing a serious health issue, a difficult family situation, or stressful financial problem.
