Abstract

Falls and fall-related injuries are common in older adults, including those with cardiac and pulmonary conditions, but thankfully falls are preventable. Despite national guidelines recommending using community-based fall prevention programs to help reduce falls, little is known about their availability at senior centers. This review summarizes pertinent evidence on community-based fall prevention programs that can be deployed for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation patients. A novel algorithm for health care workers is proposed based on the available data to help decide how to refer older adults to the appropriate community-based fall prevention programs.
