I am not too up to date on Falls research, but I did recently run across this CDC website (http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/pub-res/toolkit/SummaryOfFalls.htm). I found it very useful!

I like to use the Senior Fitness Test to assess my clients. Not sure of specific balance-related tests. What are good ones to use?

I know for my dissertation research, encouraging participation with this population was difficult. Even with the provided incentives, my numbers remained very low. Being in a university setting/area the same individuals get targeted for participation... not really sure how to get around that one, though.

I have worked in various settings, and when it comes to older adults it's always the same issues... they think they don't have time or just don't have the desire to exercise.

I think they think of "exercise" in the formal sense of the meaning and it is overwhelming to them... instead of just focusing on being more physically active throughout the day. Just walking a few minutes more a day instead of sitting on the couch watching a few more minutes of their shows, would make such a difference to their health.
