Keep Safe this Winter - Preventing Falls and Trips
As you get older, a fall can result in broken bones, but also in loss of confidence, loss of mobility and fear of leaving your home. Many falls can be prevented, and by making small changes you can lower your chances of falling.
Cold weather can be a problem for anyone, especially older people, children, people with a disability and those with long-term illness. This booklet brings together all the information and support available to householders who may experience difficulties keeping well and warm during winter.
