Bridport Town Hall, East Street, Bridport DT6 3LF
Falls are all too common among older individuals living at home, and are often life-changing events that lead to severe injury, rehospitalization, loss of independence, and early death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three adults aged 65 and older experiences at least one fall each year.

Falls caused by accidents in the home can often be prevented, and the Dorset Partnership for Older People’s Programme (POPP) has teamed up with Dorset Fire and Rescue and a number of other partner agencies, for home safety and falls prevention events taking place across the county starting in October 2014.
The aim is to raise awareness of potential dangers in the home, including faulty or damaged electrical equipment that can lead to domestic fires, and injuries caused by slips, trips, and falls.
There will also be information about surviving the winter, accessing aids and adaptations for your home, joining local activities, and managing your finances.
