I enjoyed listening to the talk as most of the factors which affect the older person in the community were addressed. Instead of just focusing on one risk factor for falls, the presenter gave a very concise look at numerous potential threats, eg deteriorating eyesight and hearing, medication and alcohol interactions, frailty, being stubborn, to name a few. The speaker encouraged the listener to take a wholistic view of the client and their environment.
