Top 10 Simple Home Safety Changes

Mar. 14, 2022; HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. Home may be where the heart is, but it can also be where the accidents are. Many studies have shown the majority of accidents take place in the home. But we can reduce those risks by taking a few minutes to look around and make a change or two… or as you will learn in our upcoming Age-Friendly Webinar – 10 simple changes.

AdventHealth Hendersonville is excited to invite you to the first webinar in our 2022 Age-Friendly Event Series, Top 10 Simple Home Safety Changes.
