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.

"Our mom, Olga Schlott, came into Pine Heights on a stretcher. With patience and hard work of the physical therapists, nurses, and aides, along with a dignified approach, our mom is walking out the front door on her own. Though nothing is perfect, your staff on the second floor 'bent over backwards' to do what they could to make our mom better both physically and emotionally."
