Can you answer YES to any of the below questions?
Do you have mobility problems?
Have you fallen in the last 6-12 months?
Do you have any conditions that may contribute towards you falling?
Falls in the home are very common amongst the elderly. Most falls are preventable and are not a natural part of ageing. There are ways you can reduce your risk of having a fall, including making simple changes to your home.
Avoiding falls at home
For example, as the bathroom is a common place where falls occur, many older people can benefit from having grab rails fitted to the inside of their bath/shower to make it easier for them to get in and out.
Steps in and out of the home can also cause problems. We can fit portable ramps quickly and easily to make access to your home safer.
There is a range of assistive technology available to keep you safe.
Fitting a personal alarm system or falls detector may also be recommended, so that you can get help in the event of a fall.
