The primary focus of the Housing group is Housing, suitable housing for older people that meet their needs and wellbeing. Falls prevention is an integral part of wellbeing for older people in the home and as such the housing groups encourage activities that promote falls prevention. If you would like to get involved in issues relating to housing for older people or contribute to the debate email [email protected] for details.
When we look at the statistics for falls prevention we find that 60% of falls in the over 65’s occur in the Home. So, in order to address this problem the Housing Group with guidance from the Health Group are working on this problem. (Suitable homes, Buildings and Home Maintenance etc.)
