Safety at Home

  • Make sure all your carpets are secure and remove loose rugs
  • Is your lighting adequate? Choose brighter bulbs, especially on stairs
  • Is furniture arranged so that you can move around easily?
  • Make sure your phone is accessible and stay in contact with friends and family. You may want to consider the benefit of a community alarm
  • Choose shoes or slippers that are well fitting with non slip soles
  • Buy and fit a smoke alarm
  • Never leave a lit cigarette unattended and never smoke in bed
