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.

I, came to Eastside Center at the end of May 2014. I was very weak and unable to maintain balance (from a high fall). With help from OT/PT, I regained much of my strength and balance. I was helped by practice of “self” tasks. I feel good again and have made a 180 degree change for the better. I can do it, you can do it, all of the staff was excellent!
I feel that the rehabilitation staff here at Eastside Center is professional, caring, know their patients’ needs and work together as a group well. My husband had open heart surgery in February 2014. He was in another facility for 2 weeks. I feel that the rehabilitation staff here would have been 100% better for him. I feel he would have continued his rehabilitation at home if he had the encouragement that I have received here. The rehabilitation staff here love their job!
Eastside Center therapy is the best all around! They are the most proficient, professional, and quickest to get you on your feet again. I was able to get "back in shape" within just three weeks from coming here. Thanks much!
This is actually a great big THANK YOU!!!...to Jackie and the entire staff at Eastside!. My friend Angela is a new long term care resident there and she was having a very difficult time adjusting. I was there a good part of this weekend and everyone was so good about answering my questions and helping Angela get adjusted as well as possible! She is like a sister to me and it took a lot of work to get her into a safe environment where she can receive the care she needs! I am so thankful that everyone is doing their best to make her feel at home!!! They were very open to my requests/suggestions and just a few changes have made a big difference for Angela! I can thank them all enough!!!
The therapy sessions I received at Eastside Center were excellent. The staff is so knowledgeable, kind and caring. I would recommend you to anyone!
I came to Eastside very weak. I could not stand, or get out of bed by myself. Everyone has been very easy and pleasant to work with. They were very patient with me and I tried to follow their procedures to regain my strength so that I could go home. Through my daily exercise with Emily and Amanda who worked with me, I am now able to walk a considerable distance. Sometimes they helped me get dressed for my daily schedule. Now thanks to them and everyone here I am now able to go home. Thank you all!
To All the People and Therapy Staff and all the Nursing Staff: You all have been here for me and I can ask for help anytime and you have all come through for me for whatever I wanted. This is why you are all so special to me. When I went to Therapy, they all said to me “Linda, you can do this.” That to me was special. Eastside Center for Health and Rehabilitation is the only place I would come back to because they give the best care and you can’t find any better place for treatment. No one can take their place, they are one in a million! I love them all so much!
Eastside Center for Health & Rehabilitation has provided my father with the utmost care. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. When the staff has been asked questions, are always upfront and straight forward with their answers and are very knowledgeable when answering. The Administrator of the Bangor facility cares about each patient individually as does the Director of Nursing and they both strive for quality care of each patient. I would recommend anyone that is in need of nursing home care to place their loved one at Eastside Center for Health & Rehabilitation.
PT and OT have been very positive for me. I have taken away a lot of good exercises to keep aiding me in the future. All the personnel at Eastside have been wonderful people to work with.
