Here are some useful safety tips to consider if you have mobility difficulties.
- If it is difficult to test your alarm ask somebody to do it for you. You can also get easy access alarms, which can be tested from the wall rather than the ceiling. The Disabled Living Foundation can provide more information on these products.
- If you have trouble moving around, consider fitting an intercom which will allow you to alert someone else in the house in the event of an emergency.
- Make sure you have easy access to any mobility aids you may need, such as a walking stick.
