One-Legged Balance Performance and Fall Risk in Mid and Later Life: Longitudinal Evidence From a British Birth CohortThe one-legged balance test is widely used as a fall risk screening tool in both clinical and research settings. Despite rising fall prevalence in midlife, there is little evidence examining balance and fall risk in those aged <65 years. This study investigated the longitudinal associations between one-legged balance and the number of falls between ages 53 and 68 years.
A Feasibility Study of Primary Care Liaisons: Linking Older Adults to Community ResourcesPrograms and services available through the aging services network can help community-dwelling older adults to age in place but are often not discussed in routine primary care. The primary care liaison was developed as a novel integration intervention to address this disconnect.
Neighborhood Food Environment and Dementia Incidence: the Japan Gerontological Evaluation Study Cohort SurveyInterventions targeting built environmental factors may encourage older people to engage in favorable behaviors and decrease dementia risk, but epidemiologic evidence is limited. This study investigated the association between neighborhood food environment and dementia incidence.
Effects of Primary Cardiovascular Prevention on Vascular Risk in Older AdultsPrimary cardiovascular prevention through simultaneously targeting multiple risk factors may be even more effective than single risk factor modification in older adults. The effects of multicomponent cardiovascular prevention on cardiovascular risk are explored.
