A scheme that helps older people in Wales live independently in their homes has saved the NHS and social care over £100 million so far, according to those who run it.
The Rapid Response Adaptation Programme (RRAP) helps with the installation of hand-rails, ramps and door entry systems for older people.
These safety measures often allow older people to return home from hospital sooner - or not have to be admitted in the first place.
The programme is funded by the Welsh Government and administered by Care & Repair Cymru through twenty-two Care & Repair agencies across Wales.
They say it has helped over 104,000 older people in Wales since being set up in 2002.
But Care & Repair Cymru says there is still more to be done, with the number of people in the UK aged over 65 expected to more than triple from 4.6 million to 15.4 million over the next 60 years.
- The effect of falls to older people costs the NHS in Wales £56 million per year
- Bed-blocking costs an estimated £30 million per year
- One residential care placement by Social Services costs around £27,000 per year
