RoSPA and insurer RSA Group have teamed up on a new home safety project, promoting the importance of remaining active in later life.
Falls are the single biggest cause of accidental injuries in the home. While they can affect people of all ages, they are most common and tend to be more serious for people in later life.
But accidents at home – including falls – can be prevented.
Maintaining an active lifestyle and keeping good levels of strength and balance can reduce your chances of having a fall. Knowing about hazards in the home is also important, so you can make some quick, simple changes to address them.
Five online roadshows took place from November 30 – December 4 to give people in later life, their families and falls prevention practitioners the opportunity to find out more about building exercise into a daily routine. But don’t worry if you missed out! All the information covered in the roadshows is available on these webpages.
