Home Safety for Over 65s

Advice for Over 65s on keeping your home safe. 

Keeping Your Home Safe

As we get older we are more likely to have an accident in our home. Approximately 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 fall each year, the majority of which are preventable. The information below provides safety advice to help prevent accidents in the home. If you are over 65, you can request a free home safety assessment from our Home Safety Officer. The assessment will help identify causes of accidents in your home and what measures to take to prevent them from happening. If you would like further advice or to book a home safety assessment you can contact the Home Safety Officer on 028 9034 0160 or by clicking the link below.
