Falling prevention for elderly

 

Safe environment for the elderly also appears in Wangsaiphoon safe community. Project on ‘falling prevention in the elderly’ aims to reduce falling injury and death in the group of the elderly.

Interventions and measures to monitor safety in the elderly included improving the elderly’s physical health such as jogging, leg muscles exercise, and using walking aid tools, modifying housing conditions such as lighting, flooring, height of furniture, handrail, steps, toilet, electrical wire, unwetted floor, and so on. Keeping this project continued, it found falling injury in the elderly decreased.

Domestic violence

‘Domestic violence prevention’ project has been set up and managed by municipality office. In the past, from the assessment survey of community-level violence, it showed the violence at moderate risk. Therefore, people were more aware as they want to have their community safer and more pleasant for themselves and their children. The surveillance system of domestic violence prevention comes up with the close relationship among neighbors, and student attendance in school. For example, if something bad happens to a family, the neighbors would notify to person in charge. If a student misses a class, his or her teacher would check what happened to the student. Basic assistance made to a family having violence were namely child protection, physical and mental health treatment, job offers, etc. A lesson on domestic violence would be learned and explored on the situation of such violence, interventions that work, and future preventive plans. Under the project, it showed community violence assessment level has an intensity equal to 1, which can be interpreted as no risk of violence.
