The Doherty’s have lived with Mr Doherty’s restricted eyesight for quite some time and as such, their home is well equipped to reduce falls risk.  There are no obstacles that may cause tripping, grab bars have been installed and non-slip mats are present in the toilet, bathroom, kitchen and laundry. Their home has no stairs or steps, which was a factor they took into account when purchasing the property.  The only recommendation made was to install a lamp beside the bed to ensure adequate visibility if either of them have to get up during the night. Likewise, installation of nightlights in the hallways would be useful.
