Half of the 20 most commonly prescribed medications taken by older adults may raise the risk of falls, according to new research. Painkillers and antidepressants were most strongly tied to a greater likelihood of being injured in a fall, the study of 64,000 Swedes over age 65 found. Severe injuries were significantly more common with 11 out of the 20 medications studied.

To: Maria Marriotti, Keith, The PTS, Nurses, Nurses Aids and the rest of the Belair Rehab Staff, Just a note of much appreciation from my family. To start with Maria, for her help getting my mom set up to get her in the rehab, to Keith hearing my desperate calls to push BC/BS to get an authorization number on a Friday late afternoon. Receiving a message on my phone at 4:45pm from Keith saying the ambulette was getting her was a huge answer to our prayers. When she got there late Friday night meeting Debbie from Admissions, she made my mother feel so welcomed and relaxed. At that point we knew she was in a good rehab. All the nurses, nurses’ aids and PTS have been so wonderful, my mother was just so happy with everyone. Her one nurse's aid, Dawn, my mother just loved. She really made Mom feel so at ease and comfortable. She truly is a caring person along with everyone else. The cleanliness and friendliness of staff just turned and upsetting situation into a more relaxed and enjoyable stay. Thank you all for helping her recover so much quicker. Everyone had a part in it and we are grateful! Belair Nursing & Rehabilitation Center is wonderful! Much sincere thanks.
I am the recipient of two knee replacements. This is a tribute and thank you to the staff at Belair Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. For many years, I suffered, bone-on-bone, trying to cope and get through the day. Every step was painful and tortuous. I finally decided to “bite the bullet” and “get my knees done.” The decision was a difficult one and was put off for a long time since the recovery period would be a long one. After each surgery, I was sent to Belair for therapy and rehabilitation. From the moment I arrived at the Belair Rehabilitation Facility until I was released, the care I received and expertise of the staff went above and beyond. The facility is immaculate and the staff is caring, dedicated, and attentive. I would like to offer my heartfelt thanks to the nurses, therapists, and staff for all you did to make my stay, not once, but twice (!) at Belair comfortable and for the expert care I received – I was teary-eyed when it was time to leave for the last time. There are no words that could possibly be adequate to express my feelings of gratitude to all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. With gratitude,
My mother was recently a patient at Belair Center. I wanted to let you know how impressed my family was with the level of care she received while at your center. I wanted to compliment the members of the Rehab Dept., particularly Doris, who was instrumental in my mother's recovery. Doris is extremely knowledgeable, patient, kind and obviously is an asset to your center. Kristin is a lovely person who also was a true professional. The nurses were patient, very professional, caring and friendly, particularly those that I saw regularly during the 3-11 shift (Kathy, Antoinette, Lauren). The aides, Lucy & Anita were also exceptional ladies. Again, compliments to all who helped in my mother's recovery.
Belair is a modern and clean facility. Overall, the staff seems happy with their jobs. Everyone works together nicely. Rehab is good: they encouraged me and are understanding. Nursing and medical care is good and I felt safe here. I have recommended Belair to several people.
There is only one thing I can say to the exceptional staff who work at Belair Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and that is THANK YOU! The entire staff at Belair is terrific, professional and really understands what respect is. I couldn’t be more impressed with what Belair has to offer and I would proudly recommend it to everyone.
I have been a patient at Belair Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers on three separate occasions and have always had a very pleasant experience. The rehab department diligently worked with me so when I was ready to be discharged, I felt very confident in going home. The care I received was great and I will continue to recommend Belair.
You made a difficult adjustment for my mom as easy as possible. The kindness and exemplary treatment by your staff has been a welcome relief. Perhaps the best testimonial for Belair came from the ambulance drivers that shuttled my mother on numerous occasions; they unfailingly remark on how clean and modern Belair is. I cannot think of anything that Belair lacks in regards to care or kindness.
