Abstract [en]

During preventive home visits, the purpose of this study was, to identify the prevalence of fall risk and any associated factors. Participants (n=1471) were cognitively sound community-dwelling older adults (≥ 70 years) without home-help service, living in a Swedish municipality. The Downton Fall Risk Index and nine single items were used. Tiredness/fatigue, age ≥ 80, inability to walk one hour, inability to climb stairs and worrying were significantly associated with fall risk. Preventive home visits incorporating fall risk screening proved valuable, providing information for interventions aimed at preventing falls, maintaining independence and facilitating health among community dwelling participants.
