Abstract: Aging is becoming an important health issue. In order to promote a successful aging process, health education could be conducted using different strategies like computer- or web-based technology, or other new technologies, instead of traditional health talks. In our study, an environmental safety awareness program (esap) was introduced to improve safety awareness and knowledge among older persons. a total of 66 elderly participants were allocated to either the experimental group (40) or the control group (26). There were no significant differences among their demographic parameters, pain locations and fall history. however, the experimental group experienced a significant increase in their knowledge of home and community safety (p< 0.05) and awareness of home and community safety (p< 0.05) after attending the ESAP.
