Researchers Say This About Falls. . .
According to the Journal of American Medical Association, a combination of fall prevention programs reduces the risk of injurious falls for older people. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis with 54 studies which showed exercise, vision assessment, home environmental assessment and modification, calcium supplementation, and vitamin D supplementation were associated with reductions in falls resulting in injury. Researchers stated the choice in fall prevention program came from patient and caregiver values and preferences.
