We are thrilled to share that Trellis awarded us a grant to provide home modifications for older adults in the Twin Cities! This funding will support Safe at Home projects for 50 older adult homeowners, which may include installing grab bars, handrails, handheld shower units, shower seats, no-slip bath treads, improved lighting to prevent falls, removing trip hazards, and more. With this support, we also plan to distribute Safe at Home Kits to 156 older adult homeowners, which will include a smoke detector, carbon monoxide detector, no-slip bath treads, dawn to dusk lightbulbs and nightlights, grabbers, mini-flash light, batteries, kitchen fire extinguisher, reusable masks, sanitizing wipes, and an application for Safe at Home services. This grant will have direct, positive impact on the health and safety of the older adult homeowners we are able to serve and we are grateful for the support of Trellis!
