Home Safety Checklist

Making your home safer is important for reducing your risk of a fall.

Slips, trips and falls can happen to anyone but as you get older the chance of it happening to you increases. With around half of all falls happening in and around the home it is important to make your home safer so you can get on with enjoying the fun things in life.

To use this quiz:

1.  Grab a pen and paper or download and print the Home Safety Checklist Action Plan before you start.

2.  Each time you answer ‘no’ to a question, you have the opportunity to make a change to make your home safer. Write this down on your list or action plan and note whether you can do this yourself or whether you need a little bit of extra help. 

3.  If you do need a little bit of extra help speak to your friends, family, GP or health care professional for help to complete the actions on your plan.

4. Make sure you tick off each action as you make the changes!
