The Relationship of Memory, Reasoning and Speed of Processing on Falling Among Older Adults
Older adults are at higher risk of falling and of suffering greater devastating effects from such falls. The objective of this study was to longitudinally examine predictors for risk of falling such as cognitive composites (reasoning, memory, speed of processing) along with traditional predictors. Data on falls, cognition, objective functional tests, visual acuity, and demographics were collected on older adults at baseline (n = 698) and at a two-year annual follow-up (n = 550).
