The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends exercise to prevent falls in at-risk community-dwelling adults aged 65 years and older.
Recurrent fall risk in the elderly is affected by daytime sleepiness and poor quality of sleep regardless of sedative use.
Among elderly patients using medium to high doses of prednisolone, alendronate treatment was associated with a significantly lower risk of hip fracture.
Treatment of older people with depression and pain should be multifactorial, including a psychological component with a focus on perceived control.
