By effectively raising the awareness, value, and necessity of a comprehensive senior home safety assessment, Age Safe America has developed a unique market segment and certification all its own.
As one part of a very busy year, the Senior Home Safety Specialist was officially registered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as a Certification Mark. In addition, the Senior Home Safety Specialist (SHSS) course had its 3rd revision; along with a newly designed CERTIFIED SHSS emblem that all graduates may use on marketing collateral and social sites. The new emblem along with USPTO registration has stepped up industry and consumer recognition of the credential. Incorporation of the Senior Home Safety Specialist certification into a nationally-recognized Occupational Therapy Doctoral Degree program curriculum even further demonstrates professional acceptance of the course.
