Safe At Home Event

Dear Editor,

On behalf of our grateful clients and board of Area 10 Agency on Aging, I want to thank you for sharing your time and talent at the Safe at Home event. We especially want to thank everyone for coming out so early on a Saturday. There were over 30 volunteers who worked at 10 homes. It was a great day, enjoyed by all.

We would especially like to thank the volunteers from Owen Valley Health Campus, McCormick’s Creek Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing Center, Chamber of Commerce, Purdue Extension, Exchange Club, Owen Valley Christian Fellowship, REPAIRS Team, who worked together to fill a multitude of trash bags, install a walkway, modify bathrooms, clear sidewalks, saw limbs, and plant beautiful spring flowers. Also, thanks go to Agewise Design for grab bars, and Monster Trash for trash pickup. Each homeowner will also have an assessment on the inside of their homes by a professional from Owen Valley Health Campus or McCormick’s Creek and there will be continuing work done for each home.

This was Area 10’s third Safe at Home event and the first in Owen County. We hope it becomes an annual event! See you next year.

Kerry Conway

Executive Director,

Area 10 Agency on Aging
