Age Safe America was created in an effort to help reduce and prevent falls and their associated costs by promoting the necessity of making preparations NOW to ensure ongoing freedom and independence for all.

Steven A. Bailey | Founder / Managing Director | Age Safe®America
Steven is driven by a passion to experience life fully; and to inspire others along the way. During the course of his entrepreneurial career in marketing, technology and training, Steven has been known as a communicator and an innovator. He was a founding partner in a successful “guerrilla” marketing consulting firm in 1987. After an extended sabbatical, Steven turned his passion for travel and adventure into a nationally distributed magazine and website and launched a video production company to push the boundaries of interactive multimedia marketing. Taking a further dive into technology, Steven served as VP of business development for a streaming media start-up in 2005 (pre-YouTube) and later developed an online university and integrated marketing certification for an international real estate publishing franchise. Some wins, some losses, always passionate, always driven.
In 2011 (the year boomers began turning 65) Steven joined the aging services industry to empower seniors and family caregivers. Early on he had an opportunity to work with almost every type of professional, organization, association, franchise and non-profit serving the senior community. He also had an opportunity to speak with hundreds of seniors and adult children over the years and realized a top concern for many was fall-related injuries. Steven found senior fall statistics staggering, and the impact on older adults, their families and the healthcare system was devastating.
In the summer of 2015, Steven launched Age Safe America. The mission was to help prevent falls and their associated costs by helping seniors and families determine steps necessary to maximize both Safety and Independence. Leveraging his knowledge of intellectual property Steven guided Age Safe® to acquire multiple USPTO registered trademarks and a massive portfolio of relevant domains in several countries. He negotiated a licensing agreement with a healthcare organization in Toronto to propel the mission and vision throughout Canada, and is targeting Europe for further international expansion. By effectively building brand equity and raising awareness for a comprehensive home safety assessment; Age Safe America developed a unique market segment and certification all its own. Steven is an admitted beach bum, avid hiker, recovering workaholic, loving husband and father.
