Abstract: Further investigation entails a close examination by a specialist to reassess and review medications, such as supplementation of Vitamin D, and psychotropic or anxiolytic medications, as well as carry out necessary tests to rule out any chronic medical conditions that may be contributing to the occurrence of falls. However one must not forget to asses and look closely to the physical conditions that may be further contributing to this scenario, with the help of a physiotherapist.
