Development of Home Safety Self Assessment Tool (HSSAT) to prevent falls in older adults and testing of the use of HSSAT on reducing home hazards for falls and the number of falls. Current version is 4. Two research studies on the effectiveness of the use of HSSAT were conducted and became two master’s theses. Another study on psychometrics of HSSAT was conducted and accepted for publication in a peer reviewed journal. With this evidence, counties and healthcare providers in the U.S. and other countries are using the HSSAT. On-site fall prevention education reached over 3,500 older adults and their formal and informal caregivers.

Coordinated by the Office of Community Relations, UB’s Universitywide Adopt-a-Family helps make the holidays a little warmer and brighter for a number of local families in need.
