No matter the age or health of a person, life presents risks in many forms. Anybody can be a victim of accidents and even notably safe neighborhoods are not impervious to crime. But for older adults, the repercussions of getting injured may be more serious. This is why it is extremely important for independent living communities to go above and beyond in imposing safety measures to protect the safety of residents. If you or your loved ones are thinking about moving into an independent living community, be sure to go through their safety measures. Here at Caruth Haven Court, we have many safety measures in place to ensure the safety of our residents.
