When you have little ones, the most important step you can take to keep them safe at home is baby-proofing. As inconvenient as electric outlet plugs, cabinet latches, and baby gates can be for adults, these safety measures are musts as babies develop into curious toddlers. Then as toddlers mature into preschoolers, these safety precautions become less needed. However, if you have a child who has a physical, cognitive, or developmental disability as they age, it is often necessary to add even more layers of safety to your home. Thankfully, Child Senior Safety is here to help!

What is Child Senior Safety?
Child Senior Safety is an Orlando-based professional home safety company run by Bob Dane. The mission of Child Senior Safety is to provide parents the peace of mind of knowing they have chosen the best solutions in creating a safe environment for their children. They also offer solutions for any family member that requires extra safety precautions, such as seniors or those with physical or cognitive disabilities.
Child Senior Safety’s Back Story
Bob got the idea to start Child Senior Safety 15 years ago when his daughter-in-law, who had just become a new mother, suggested it. Becoming a grandfather was motivation enough to send him on a mission to ensure all children live in a safe home. He started the company and then joined the International Association for Child Safety, a national network of child safety and baby proofers.
Free In-Home or Remote Consultation
Bob offers his customers free in-home or remote consultations. He conducts a thorough walk-through via in-person or video call and suggests recommendations based on the unique dangers presented in each home. Bob then creates a customized plan for his clients, ensuring the highest level of safety.
Child Senior Safety only uses top quality materials and products to make certain your home is as safe as possible. Some of the services they offer include:
- Customized Gates (Indoor and Out)
- Cabinet/Drawer/Door Locks

What is Bob’s main message to parents? “Don’t take any chances.” He urges parents that making their home safe should be a proactive approach. You don’t know what your child is capable of until after it has happened.
I encourage you to reach out to Bob if you have a young toddler, a child with special needs, or an elderly family member living in your home. There is nothing more important than keeping our loved ones safe!
