Safe a Home - A Service of CICOA

Canceled – Safe at Home Event

September 12 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm

We have made the difficult decision to cancel this event due to rising levels of cases of COVID-19 in Central Indiana.

Volunteer and client safety are top priority. While we cannot gather to complete these home modifications for seniors on September 12, we remain committed to making seniors’ homes and yards safe and accessible for daily living and to prevent falls. Our Safe at Home service continues to assess clients’ safety needs and work with licensed contractors to perform this important work year-round. Please consider supporting Safe at Home with a one-time or monthly gift so that seniors can safely age in place where they want to be – at home.

At this time, enthusiastic volunteers are needed to check in with lonely and isolated seniors through weekly phone calls. Your friendly voice and compassionate care can brighten a senior’s day! Would you consider signing up to volunteer for telephone reassurance?

We thank all of our sponsors, community partners and volunteers for your dedication to serving CICOA clients and the good work you do to provide a good quality of life for seniors. We are thinking of you and wishing you good health and wellbeing.

“It’s hard for me to do everything on my own, especially since I’ve lost my spouse and don’t have family. To have support from CICOA is a wonderful thing. It’s a relief.”

Carleen hopes to stay in her home in the Crown Hill neighborhood for as long as she can.
