Falls threaten seniors’ safety and independence and generate enormous economic and personal costs. In the United States, one of every three persons over the age of 65 falls each year, and two-thirds of those who fall do so again within six months. Falling, regardless of injury, also impacts a person’s quality of life. Many older adults report that fear of falling causes them to limit their activities and social engagements - leading to isolation, loneliness, and fear.
Unfortunately, the cost of installing safety equipment is cost-prohibitive for many living on fixed incomes.
You can help us change that - your gift of $400 will transform a home interior into a safer space for an older adult. Just $400 will install grab bars in a bathtub, add an anti-slip shower mat, shower seat and handheld sprayer, and install a toilet riser. These small things can make ALL the difference in someone's life ... and even save it.
Won't you give today -- no matter the amount -- and help save a senior's life? Someone will be forever grateful for your kindness.
It's heartbreaking. Our office gets calls daily from seniors all around the Valley - living alone and isolated on limited incomes - who desperately need help to install fall prevention equipment in their homes.
We SO want to help but as a non-profit, we rely on people like YOU to provide gifts to make these life-saving installations a reality. Without your help, sometimes we have no choice but to turn away clients - knowing they don't have any other options.
Older adults, living on very limited incomes, often must make unthinkable choices. $400 may not sound like much but for many, it's simply unaffordable. Unfortunately, this choice can ultimately mean the difference between life and death.
With your help, we can provide critical home repairs, provide home inspections, and install fall prevention equipment for a vulnerable, disadvantaged elder with nowhere else to turn. With your help, we can save a life.
We need you. THEY need you. Thank you for caring. Thank you for choosing to save a life.
