Older adults who are receiving home-care physical
therapy services were studied to determine
whether how they think and how they walk are related.
We studied 10,953 people over the age of 65
to try to better understand if there was a relationship
between a clinician's ranking of how well someone's
brain was working and how well that person walked.
There appears to be a strong relationship between
people's ability to think clearly and how well they
can walk in their homes.
