Guide: How safe is your home?

Most of us spend a lot of time at home and we all want to feel safe there. Spending more time at home may make it more likely you’ll come across hazards and accidents. Being aware of potential danger areas and unsafe habits, can help you to keep yourself safe.

The older persons charity, Independent Age have come up with a great guide to help you. Try their quick quiz in their Home safety guide to find out how safety conscious you are.

Their guide can help you identify some of the common risks in your home and advise you on ways to prevent accidents, as well as where to go for help when you need it. It also covers useful information on:

•    avoiding falls
•    fire safety
•    electrical safety
•    staying safe in the kitchen
•    managing your medication
•    … and more.

There’s also an audio version of the guide, which make for an easy listening option.
