Over half of all falls happen at home, where we spend much of our time and tend to move around without thinking about our safety.

Often this is because of hazards within the home or difficulty with daily activities such as getting in / out of bed, on / off a chair or toilet, or in / out of the bath may also cause falls.

Falls prevention in and around the home is often described as ‘common sense’, however, it isn’t always easy to recognise the things that can cause trips, slips and falls.
