Home Injury Control

Home Injury Control is a program to prevent injuries in the homes of disabled and frail senior citizens who could not otherwise afford safety devices. A one time service can be provided to anyone 60 years of age or older who does not qualify for devices under any other funded program.

Home Injury Control can install any of the following safety devices: grab bars, transfer benches, handheld shower heads and toilet assist rails. Services are targeted to create a sense of bathroom safety and prevent falls.

Upon completing and returning a simple application, you will be contacted by a Chore Service representative to schedule an appointment for installation.

Temporary Modular Ramps

Macomb Community Action also installs temporary modular aluminum ramps on a short-term basis for wheelchair-bound senior citizens. There is a nominal monthly lease fee. When the ramps are no longer needed, they are removed and used for new clients. The number of ramps is limited; a waiting list is maintained for this project.

Cost Sharing

Seniors requesting Home Injury Control Service are expected to share in the cost of providing the service. For each service performed, the senior should make an appropriate contribution. No one will be excluded from receiving services if their income does not permit them to contribute at the recommended level.
