Chronic Conditions and the High Risk of Falling
The number of seniors living with chronic diseases is on the rise. This retrospective study report by Philips Research reveals surprising new data linking seniors living with chronic conditions to a greater risk of falling.
Fear of Falling in Older Persons
Fear of falling (FOF) is a significant falls risk factor among older adults that often results in social isolation and a spiraling physical, emotional, and functional decline. This informative white paper, written by Alan M. Jette, PhD, PT and Director of the Health and Disability Research Institute, Boston University, provides an overview of the incidence of FOF, who is at risk and how to identify them, the impacts of FOF and how FOF can be treated.
Explaining Epidemiological Factors of Falls to Older Adults
Falls remain the primary cause of injury, injury-related hospitalization and death among older adults. Communicating the risk of falling and how the risk can be reduced to older adults can be challenging, but Philips Lifeline’s Explaining Epidemiological Factors of Falls to Older Adults makes it easier. This 16-page booklet summarizes the key facts that seniors and their caregivers need to know, and provides valuable tips on how to effectively communicate this information.
