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.

My friends recommended The Pines at Catskill. My stay was comfortable, the staff are friendly and the food is good! The rehab staff is strong and it is another reason why I chose to go to The Pines at Catskill.
Nicest place I’ve ever been. The therapists are great, nurses and aides are courteous, and helpful with things you would not expect to be helped with! The food is delicious. I would recommend the Pines at Catskill to anyone!
