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.

Everybody I had contact with was very helpful, nice and polite. It was like going on a little mini vacation.
I’d been here before and came back because I love my nurses. They take care of me and I had gotten better so fast last time… thank you for making sure I had the same nurses. I was happy to see them and I think they were excited to see me!
I’m glad I chose Kennebunk Center for my rehab. What an excellent and fun therapy team to work with! Now I walk, I can move, I have more sensation…whatever they tell me to do, I do!
The therapy here is great…so many different programs. I like all of the activities. I was at a big facility in Portland and they didn’t have as much to do as you do here. You have a really positive atmosphere and I’ve met a lot of people.
I would like to note that the staff of Kennebunk Center impressed me from the moment I walked in the door. The professional climate & culture of this facility is very evident in the conscientiousness of the employees, the standards the supervisors demand, and the effective & compassionate leadership the supervisors demonstrate.
