What is a Safe and Well Check?

A Safe and Well Check is a FREE home safety visit that is tailored to an individual’s needs.  All residents over the age of 70 years are automatically eligible for a visit.  Vulnerable residents are also eligible.

The visit, which is conducted by Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, includes a home safety check to help reduce the risk of fire in the home, including the checking and fitting of smoke alarms where required. This includes alarms suitable for those with a hearing impairment and giving advice on a fire escape plan.

It will also identify any health and care needs that require signposting to local services to help ensure safety and wellbeing.

A Safe and Well Check maximises the opportunity to help individuals stay safe and independent and include advice on the following:

  • Fire safety in the home
  • Falls prevention
  • Winter Warmth
  • Social Isolation and loneliness
  • Crime prevention
  • Smoking
