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.

My mother, Elizabeth Maxfield spent time in all the areas of Norway Rehabilitation and Health Care Center—Nearly 1 year in Rehab., 2 ½ years in assisted living, 1 ½ years in nursing care. I was very please in the way she was cared for in all these areas
Norway Rehab and its staff continue to give very good care to our mom. It seems that all of her needs are met in a timely manner. I’m always kept in the loop when changes occur. Best of all there’s a high level of compassion along with the high level of Service. Thank you.
I wanted to take a minute this morning to write a brief testimonial regarding the care provided myself and my family at the Norway Center for Health and Rehabilitation. Over a period of several ‘recent years,’ myself, husband and mother well all ‘cared for’ at this center. My admittance was after open heart Surgery, and surgery for the total knee replacement of both knees. My husband was admitted to this facility after an illness and then again after a fall. We could not have received better care! Every person, (without exception) from the nursing staff, CNAs, Physical Therapy groups, the Administrative Staff, Activities Coordinators as well as the housekeeping and maintenance staff, did everything within their power to ensure that our stays were positive experiences; with their primary focus on healing and wellness! My Mother spent more than a year at this facility, due to Dementia, and during that time was treated with kindness, caring and the respect that she deserved no matter what her mental status. Her physical needs were consistently met. She came to love the staff, and this became her “Home” over time! One of the things that she most looked forward to was the MUSIC provided on a regular basis. I should mention here that moving her out of her home (because I could no longer keep her safe) was the most difficult thing that I, as per primary caregiver, had ever faced. However the entire staff at this facility also helped to educate me and cared for me during those initial days!!! They became part of “OUR FAMILY!!” Thanks so much for all that you have done, and continue to do for the people that you service!! Sincerely,
Our Mother was a resident of Norway Center for Health & Rehab for many years, first in assisted living, then in skilled care and finally in Long Term Care. At all times she was treated with loving care, kindness and professionalism. The staff became part of her and our family and she thought so much of them. When my time comes to enter a nursing home, it will be here. I have recommended it to many people.
