Age Safe® America: Helping Families Stay Safe In their Home
Approximately one-third of adults age 65 years or older fall in their homes each year, resulting in injury, long-term disability, and premature institutionalization.
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
My passion is to experience life fully and inspire others along the way. During the course of my 35-year entrepreneurial career in marketing, technology, and training, I’ve been known as a communicator and an innovator. Back in 1987, I was a founding partner in a successful “guerrilla” marketing consulting firm. Years later, I embarked on an extended sabbatical that led me to launch a travel and adventure magazine and website. That progressed my attention into video production and streaming media (pre-YouTube). In 2007 I was called to develop an online university and certification to help real estate agents engage internet-empowered consumers. Some wins, some losses, always passionate, always driven.
In 2011 (the year boomers began turning 65), I joined the aging services industry to empower seniors and family caregivers. In that position, I had an opportunity to work with nearly every type of professional, organization, association, franchise, and non-profit serving the senior community. I also had an opportunity to speak with hundreds of seniors and adult children over the years. I realized a top concern for many was, in fact, fall-related injuries. My research found senior fall statistics and devastating impact on older adults, their families, and the healthcare system.
In the summer of 2015, I consciously decided to make “helping older adults live safely and stay independent in their own homes”, my work and my mission and launched Age Safe® America.
Over the years, we effectively built brand equity while raising awareness for a comprehensive home safety assessment. In doing this, Age Safe America, LLC developed a unique market segment and certification all its own. Leveraging my knowledge of intellectual property, we have acquired multiple USPTO registered trademarks and a massive portfolio of relevant domains in several countries. In 2020 we negotiated a licensing agreement with a healthcare organization in Toronto to propel the Age Safe® mission and vision throughout Canada and are now targeting further international expansion. I am always open to discussing mutually beneficial partnerships. At the end of the day, I am an admitted beach bum, avid hiker, recovering workaholic, and loving husband and father.
We are dedicated to helping older adults live safely and stay independent in their own homes.
