A private tax exempt organization helping older adults and individuals with disabilities "Friends" is an entirely volunteer organization that provides and installs home safety devices for seniors and adults with disabilities free of charge.
Some examples are:
- Bathtub safety grips, non-slip tub mats
- Toilet seat elevators and toilet safety grab bars
- High visibility house numbers
- Hand held shower heads
Friends of Arundel Seniors works closely with the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities and other human service organizations. Kiwanis volunteers install the devices in homes of seniors and adults who are disabled. Funds come from donations that are tax deductible. Over 98% of all funds go directly to the older or disabled adult.
