Social support and older adult falls 27747541 2018 11 13 2197-1714 3 1 2016 Dec Injury epidemiology Inj Epidemiol Social support and older adult falls. 4 Social support has been shown to be associated with various positive health outcomes among older adults but has not been previously examined in relation to falls, which are a serious health concern among older adults. This study (n = 1000) uses multivariable logistic regression to evaluate the relationship between social contact and perceived (...) availability of social support and falls among older adults. When adjusting for demographic and other covariates neither relationship was significant. This study does not find evidence to suggest that social support could be a prevention measure for falls.
