Hip Fractures and Alzheimer's Disease by gjjur4356


									Hip Fractures and Alzheimer’s Disease
People with Alzheimer’s disease have a higher incidence of hip fractures than other elderly
people. Unfortunately, patients with dementia are also less likely to recover their previous
functional status following a hip fracture, are more likely to require institutionalization, and
have a higher mortality rate.
