How to help prevent your relative from falling at home

It’s now getting darker earlier than before thanks to the changing seasons and the clocks going back. Don’t forget, if your relative has their lights on timer these will need to be adjusted to ensure the lights come on at the right time. Poor lighting could increase their chances of falling as it makes it harder for their brain to work out where they are and so makes it more difficult to balance.

NRS Healthcare have produced a useful guide to preventing falls as well as information on the kinds of equipment you can buy to help make the chances of a fall much smaller.
