Safe & Well visits by Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service
A Safe and Well visit is a person centred home visit to identify and reduce risk to the occupier or occupiers, taking into account their behaviours and the social and physical environment in which they live.
The visit combines a home safety check to reduce fire risk in the home, such as checking and fitting smoke alarms, with health referrals for extra support where appropriate, to improve the occupier’s health and wellbeing.
Safe and Well visits maximise the opportunity to prevent ill health and harm to people in our communities and cover common hazards, including:
- Falls risk reduction
- Loneliness and isolation
- Winter warmth
- Substance misuse
