CHORE services are designed to assist individuals to modify their homes, or the home of the one they care for, so that it is more suited to their safety. The CSI Office on Aging works in conjunction with Interfaith Volunteer Caregivers (IVC) to install different types of safety equipment to reduce the risk of falls in the home.
We frequently provide funds to IVC to help build wheelchair ramps to help provide safer access in or out of the home. Handrails and grab bars in various areas of the home are also often provided, which reduces risk from falls.
To find out what help is available, call and talk with the Office on Aging and we will provide information on possible resources to help you with your fall risk needs. Our phone number is 208-736-2122.
