Abstract
This study was to determine related factors of recurrent falls among the home-dwelling elderly. A sample is 1,902 (male 1,055, female 847) who are over 65 years old. This study used data extracted from the Korean Longitudinal Study of Aging (KLoSA) by the Korea Labor Institute. Univariate analyses were done using chi-square for associated factors of recurrent falls and multivariate logistic regression analyses were used for risk factors of recurrent falls. Only 63 (3.3%) elderly had experienced recurrent falls last two years of period in panel data. There was a significant difference between elderly who fell recurrently and those who did not with regard to gender, having a spouse, chronic disease, regular medication, depression, ADL limitation, perceived health status,and fear of falling. The risk factors for recurrent falls were ADL limitation and fear of falling. In this study, an ADL limitation and fear of falling were significant factors that differentiated refallers and non-refallers. Therefore,an effective fall prevention program should be focused on multiple risk factor intervention with modifiable components for the elderly.
