Pimp My Zimmer project 'reduces falls'

Care home residents in Wales have been decorating their Zimmer frames, with help from local schoolchildren. The Pimp My Zimmer project aims to reduce falls after a care home matron noticed people with dementia sometimes find it hard to recognise their own frame. One care home claims the project has reduced falls by up to 60%.
