Safer homes may cut falls in elderly people with poor vision

http://bmj.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/331/7520/0-c?etoc

Home safety assessment and modification programmes may reduce the number of falls and injuries in elderly people with poor vision who live at home. Campbell and colleagues (p 817) randomised 391 people aged ≥75 years to one of four groups: a home safety programme, an exercise programme plus vitamin D supplementation, both these interventions, or social visits. The incidence of falls fell by 40% among those randomised to receive the home safety programme compared with those not receiving the home safety programme; the exercise programme failed to reduce the number of falls, possibly because of poor adherence.
