Abstract

Fear of Falling (FoF) is the most commonly reported fear among older adults (up to 50%) and can result in the avoidance of physical and social activities, potentially leading to loss of confidence, social isolation, increasing dependency, depression and decreased quality of life. To develop a psychological intervention to address FoF, we investigated how older people make sense of and accommodate fear of falling in their everyday lives.
