Half of the 20 most commonly prescribed medications taken by older adults may raise the risk of falls, according to new research. Painkillers and antidepressants were most strongly tied to a greater likelihood of being injured in a fall, the study of 64,000 Swedes over age 65 found. Severe injuries were significantly more common with 11 out of the 20 medications studied.

"I knew for myself the minute I walked in the door that these people truly cared-every single staff member reflected a patient-focus and a genuine, believable desire to help our Dad get better and stay well! Thank you from the bottom of our family's heart for being so good at what you do!"
"They treated both me and my husband as family. I thank them for my speedy recovery and their support in helping me return home even stronger than I was prior to going to the hospital. It was great to make so many friends while I was there. I recommend them to all my family and friends."
“The facility was beautiful and the accommodations very comfortable. However, it is not a room or a building that builds success in rehabilitation; it is the staff of people with excellent skills that makes all the difference. The care I received was always given with respect, dignity and a cheerful, smiling manner.”
“The people here are the best. They genuinely care about their patients and were always willing to go above and beyond to get me better. My husband and I are truly thankfully for all they have done.”
