Risk in Community-Dwelling Older Adults

This prospective clinical investigation examined the effects of a multidimensional exercise program on balance, mobility, and risk for falls in community-dwelling older adults with a history of falling. Factors used to predict adherence and a successful response to exercise were identified. A total of 105 community-dwelling older adults (≥65 years of age) with a history of two or more falls in the previous 6 months (no neurologic diagnosis) participated. They were classified into a control group of fallers (n=21), a fully adherent exercise group (n=52), and a partially adherent exercise group (n=32). evaluation, each patient received an individualized exercise program addressing the impairments and functional disabilities identified during the assessment.
