Age-Friendly Rural Planning

Why is rural planning important in the health and wellbeing of our elders? https://bit.ly/3lbPiYm

In rural areas, age-friendly efforts tend to start as grassroots planning, producing results that may appear modest but which still make a difference in small communities.

If you want to talk about ageing, then do it properly

We use the term aging to describe the natural progression of life—but is this the best way to talk about getting "older"?

https://bit.ly/3kr6TLy

The word ‘ageing’ does not mean ‘old’ or older. It is an adjective which refers to time passing, and the effect of that time passing on the noun it describes for the duration of that noun remaining in existence. In the case of people, the duration for which we are alive. A blogpost by Dr. Ha...

If your favourite granddaughter was an engineer and an occupational therapist, can you imagine how much safety support you’d have?!

She’s probably not your actual granddaughter, but Rebecca Langbein brings all of these perspectives together.

She’s a Philadelphia-area engineer and OT who works for The Universal Design Project, and a passionate advocate for inclusive design.

What happens when we stop relying on women’s unpaid work?

Have you been a caregiver for an older relative? Have you ever had to stop? What happened?

A recent report from King's College London identified the staggering costs older women workers face when it comes to providing care for older relatives, prompting the question: why is this not a shared responsibility between both men and women?

Our Story

In 1994, HealthCraft Products (our parent company) was co-founded by a medical retailer, an occupational therapist, and a design engineer. They brought their three disciplines together to create innovative fall prevention products for the home.

HealthCraft Group exists because preventing falls demands more than just great products. We need to change the conversation around fall prevention, because it affects us all.

For over 25 years, our products have won awards and helped over 1 million people stay safe and independent in their homes—but in spite of this, aging, accessibility, and fall prevention still carry a tremendous amount of stigma.

No matter how it happens, losing ability is jarring. When the simple tasks we take for granted suddenly become difficult, it’s easy to feel defeated, scared, ashamed, and alone—but nobody has to feel this way.
