New anti-slip footwear can stop some trips, slips and falls caused by old worn out slippers and help people to stay safe and well at home. Rickmansworth Library are hosting this free event on Tuesday 9th October from 10am – 12pm. You will be able to pick FREE Slippers to prevent slips and trips, and join in for a cuppa and a chat about social groups in our community. No need to book just turn up!
This year they also want to help to reduce loneliness and social isolation which can have a huge impact on wellbeing and health. Representatives from local organisations will be there to chat about their clubs and welcome event visitors to join. Visitors can talk to Diabetes Foot Care, Occupational Therapists, Fire Safety and Age UK advisers.
