Seniors’ Home Safety

What is the Seniors’ Home Safety Program?
The Seniors’ Home Safety Program (SHSP) is a free service that provides information and tips to help seniors stay safe in their homes. It is for seniors 55+ living in Halifax, Dartmouth and communities extending from Bedford to the Sambro Loop. The program is delivered by trained volunteers, who are also seniors.

Safety presentations & community information events:
Community groups can request SHSP attend a public information-sharing event or do an informative home safety presentation provided by our trained volunteers. Participants will learn important safety information on several topics:

  • Property Crime Prevention
  • Elder Abuse
  • Frauds & Scams
  • Fire Safety
  • Falls Prevention
  • General Safety Inside & Outside the Home

Call 902-490-2554 or e-mail to book a visit or presentation and for more information.
