Dementia safety first

Helping people affected by dementia live more safely in their homes

People with dementia or memory problems are in the highest group of risk of injury from a fire related incident in the home.  We are working with local dementia services to support people with dementia to live safely in their homes.

You can request a visit if:

  1. You have dementia
  2. You are over 65 and have memory problems
  3. You live with someone who has a diagnosis of dementia
  4. You are over 65 and living with someone who does not have a dementia diagnosis but is concerned about their memory

How do I arrange for a home safety visit to be made?
