Publication type: News item

In a nutshell: This article, originally from the AgeUK website, asks whether more can be done to get rid of the worst case fall scenario: a vulnerable older person falls and is unable to call for help. The person is therefore being left lying on the floor alone for long periods. Topics include not using fall alarms, and the common scenario where care is provided but some aspects aren’t considered and care is not joined up.
