Safety advice for people in their home

A person who lives on their own could have an unexpected accident and no one would be on hand to call for help. Some of the people living alone do have a nurse calling on them once a week, but this is not always the case.

Nurses and cares can be sent to a person’s home to care for them and to give them solid advice on how to prepare them for such emergency situations. The first thing they advise is to pin their doctor’s details or a family member’s name, address and telephone at the back of their kitchen or bedroom door. Other telephone numbers for gas, electric and water suppliers can be written on the same list in case of any emergency.

One avenue to explore is asking a couple of people to drop in daily as they are passing by. Ask if they would mind giving their telephone number to add to the emergency list. A person who requires a nursing home bed or a care bed lives on their own and you are worried about them you can ask if they would like further details on having a fitted community alarm in their home. This safety procedure will give peace of mind to both parties.
