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.

Therapy was terrific, an excellent crew!
I love it here! I was here before , the food is great and the therapists work hard with me.
Everyone has been great here. When I went to my follow up doctor's appointment, my aide, Amelia came with me and held my hand which made me feel good.
I couldn't have asked for anything nicer. Everything is excellent, the food is excellent!
The nurses' and the CNA care is awesome, and they are always willing to help. If they don't have the answer, they go and find it - and I like that! Everyone is always smiling.
I thought that the therapy room was very well run and I was very impressed. There is tremendous concern for the patients' well-being from the aides to the nursing staff to the other professionals in the center. It's a tough job that they do.
The aides are very good to me. The admissions director has been very good to me and I think the world of her!
“In my book, they are the top choice in the area, just ask me!”
“This is a very fine place if you must be somewhere other than home, the therapists are especially great!”
