Senior Safety

A free service to help seniors feel safe! Eastwood residents can now take advantage of free home safety checks and small repairs-- thanks to a new grant.
Residents of the Eastwood Community can feel a little safer in their homes.  Peace Inc. has obtained grant money through the Gifford Foundation and Health Foundation of Central & Western New York which allows them to do free home safety checks.

The safety inspections include adding small items and minor home repairs that could prevent at-home injuries. Common preventative measures include installing hand rails, taping down loose rugs, and more.  Inspectors will also leave a safety kit that includes flashlights, wind-up radios and legal tips.

If you are an Eastwood Community resident, and need more info on the free home safety checks call: (315) 437-4011 or peace-caa.org
