Life can be unpredictable, and certain events like a sudden trip, fall, or injury, or the natural process of aging, can significantly impact an individual’s daily life and independence. At the Dayle McIntosh Center (DMC), we understand the challenges that such changes can bring, and we are committed to providing comprehensive support to those in need.

One of the essential support services we offer is dedicated to Home Modification. We believe that a person’s home should be a place of comfort and safety, allowing them to continue living with as much autonomy as possible. However, when mobility or physical abilities are affected, simple tasks around the house can become challenging and potentially hazardous. Our team works closely with individuals to make necessary adjustments to their living spaces, ensuring that their homes become more accessible and functional.

Additionally, we strongly believe in the importance of fall prevention education. Falls can have severe consequences, particularly for older adults or those with mobility challenges. Therefore, we provide training and resources to help people learn practical techniques to reduce the risk of falls in their everyday lives.
