Anyone can have an accident in their own home. The risks increase if you have trouble moving around, or if you're not as good at remembering things as you used to be.
You may be more prone to tripping or falling, leaving things such as fires and cookers on when they don't need to be, or leaving objects lying around in dangerous places. And you may be more vulnerable to dishonest people trying to take advantage of you.
Thankfully, there are plenty of preventative measures you can take to make sure you stay as safe as possible in your home.
