Installing new door thresholds is one of the simplest, but most important modifications to make, Vander h eiden says, because they present a tripping hazard for seniors. Slips and falls are the lead- ing cause of accidental death for people over age 65 and most of these falls occur around the home. "This is an affordable and easy sell for h M e providers," Vander- h eiden said. "They should be on the lookout for small vertical rises around the home that can be rem- edied with an attractive and afford- able transition product." b uil D momentum There are referral sources galore for prospective home modifica- tion candidates and h M e provid- ers should be regularly canvassing these sources, like outpatient rehab centers and VA facilities, to find them, e verett said. "These places serve the patients who need home modification prod- ucts to support their daily lives," he said. "Look specifically for referral sources who are 'aging in place' spe- cialists—there are more of them in the market now than ever." Another potentially valuable resource is h omesRenewed, a coalition of business, consumers, and nonprofits driving policy and investment to increase the number of age-friendly homes. By joining the group, founder Louis Tenen- baum said h M e providers can learn more about the marketplace and how to capitalize on opportuni- ties in the growing "aging in place" movement.
