Age Concern Harrow – Accident Prevention

From Age UK Harrow – formerly known as Age Concern Harrow:

The Accident Prevention scheme aims to help older people in danger of having accidents, such as falls, in their own homes. The resident can ask us for the service or any carer, relative, friend, neighbour or professional worker worried about this older person falling.

Our skilled volunteer will make an appointment to visit your home. He will complete a basic safety assessment and carry out any work that can be done at the time.

This could include:

  • fitting grab rails in bathrooms, in toilets, at front and back doors
  • making carpets safe
  • making telephone cables safe.

If thought necessary, a referral will be made to other agencies.

There is no charge for either materials or labour. Donations, though, are welcome.
