A grab rail to at your front or back door could prevent a fall in icy weather. Rails inside your home - in your shower and along your stairs - could be a big help too. Contact Occupational Therapy in Merton to request an assessment on: 020 8545 4477. Keeping a mixture of salt and sand handy to put on steps or paths in icy weather is also a good idea – ask a friend or relative to get some from a DIY store.
