Caring for someone who smokes

Smoking-related materials have been the top factor in fatal fires for many years. The best way to prevent such fires is to stop smoking so, if you’re caring for someone who smokes, start by encouraging them to quit. Find help and advice through the NHS – www.nhs.uk/smokefree

If you see any of the below in the home of the person you care for, you should take immediate action:

High-risk smoking

Smoke alarms

Other factors

If the person you care for isn’t ready to stop smoking, reducing risks is the next best thing, and e-cigarettes are much safer. A lit cigarette dropped on a bed or a chair can quickly cause a fatal fire, but no such risk exists with an e-cigarette.

If they switch to e-cigarettes, make sure they buy a good quality device, and learn to charge it safely – click here for more guidance.

Further guidance

We offer free Safe & Well visits, where we come to the home at a convenient time to see what we can do together to make you or the person you care for safer. We will fit free smoke alarms where required.
