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.

This is my 2nd stay at Country Center for Health & Rehabilitation within the past year for my COPD. I had heard that Country Center had done some renovations and specialized in short-term rehabilitation. My stay has been great, it felt almost like a home experience, whatever I needed they were always right there from the nurses to CNA’s to dietary to housekeeping, I never wanted for anything. The staff made me feel like I was part of their family, like they were taking care of their mother. The therapy staff was excellent and gave me what I needed. I went way beyond my goals with the help of all the staff, they made me feel like a brand new woman. All the staff always had a smile on their face, was friendly, and never made me feel rushed. People went above and beyond for me. I had a roommate towards the end of my stay and to hear the staff interact with a person I didn’t know made me feel good because they were so kind, patient and friendly. If anyone is looking for placement for themselves, a loved one I would highly recommend Country Center, its home away from home.
