Falls Prevention – Keeping yourself safe

Adaptations and equipment

If you find it difficult to cope in your home you may be able to get adaptations carried out to make your home easier for you to use.

Adaptations may include:

  • grab rails located in the bathroom or at the entrance
  • widening doors for wheelchair access
  • a level access shower
  • a stair lift
  • a ramp.

All adaptations are considered by the Council's Occupational Therapy Service who will recommend what works would help you most.
