The risk profile for community-dwelling elderly is valid and useful to identify elderly with a high risk of recurrent falling.

- Brief summarySubjects are visited at home where several questionnaires are completed (among which risk profile, MMSE, medication and fall questionnaire). Also 4 functional tests are conducted. Subjects at high risk of falling are randomised and the intervention group is invited to the hospital. All subjects with a high risk of falling complete a mailed questionnaire concerning the cost effectiveness 3, 6 and 12 months after the home visit. A second home visit will take place one year after the first home visit. During the second visit the functional tests are repeated. All subjects report falls on a fall calendar during 1.5 years.
