There are two types of home safety assessments: a general assessment of home safety and a safety assessment for individuals with limited abilities and mobility, for example, for persons with impaired vision, individuals who have dementia, or for those who use a wheelchair.

A general home safety assessment is usually done by insurance agents or security consultants and involves the following evaluation of:

  • Stair handrails security
  • Smoke alarms
  • Door locks
  • Lighting

Safety and accessibility assessments are normally conducted by licensed occupational therapists and involve reviews of your home for possible fall risks. Safety and accessibility assessments aim to ensure your home is accessible and convenient.

Devoted Guardians'
Response to COVID-19

Devoted Guardians is actively monitoring the progression of the coronavirus, COVID-19, to ensure that we have the most accurate and latest information on the threat of the virus. As you know, this situation continues to develop rapidly as new cases are identified in our communities and our protocols will be adjusted as needed.

While most cases of COVID-19 are mild, causing only fever and cough, a very small percentage of cases become severe and may progress particularly in the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions. Because this is the primary population that Devoted Guardians serves, we understand your concerns and want to share with you how our organization is responding to the threat of COVID-19.

We are following updates and procedures from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) State Department of Health, local and county authorities, the Home Care Association of America and other agencies and resources. Our response and plans may adjust according to the recommendations from these organizations.
