My House or My Home

On 6 February Age UK London, Making Research Count and the Social Care Workforce Research Unit hosted their sixth joint annual conference on the theme of older people called ‘My House or My Home?’.

You can read a brief report on the event, as well as find links to other resources including an in depth blog post from the Social Care Workforce Research Unit, on the Age UK London website.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents launched its new film Facing Up to Falls at a joint event today with Age UK London, London Voluntary Service Council and Housing Learning and Improvement Network: http://bit.ly/19kdlJS

The film contains advice on preventing a fall and involves real-life experiences
of older people living in the London boroughs of Hackney, Islington and Newham. At the event we heard about the human and financial cost of older people suffering falls, and about how the risk of falls can be minimised by linking to preventive services like Age UK’s fit as a fiddle programme.
