Abstract : One in three aged falls each year and this proportion increases with age. In France, 450,000 aged fall each year. The population of Reunion Island is young, but has an earlier entry into the dependency than the metropolitan population. The College of Teaching General Practitioners of the Indian Ocean (CGEOI), the Department of General Medicine of the University (DUMG) of Reunion Island and the Regional Health Agency of the Indian Ocean (ARS OI) achieved, between 2016 and 2017, the Gramoune Care study. A geriatric assessment of the 876 included aged was done. The risk of falling was systematically assessed by a Timed Up and Go (TUG) test. This dissertations describes the characteristics of aged at risk of falling in the population of the Gramoune Care study. The characteristics related to the prevalence of the risk of falling were, at first, criteria of personal autonomy loss, movement disorders and, and then, fall risk factors identified by INPES and HAS (undernutrition, cognitive disorders, depression and consumption of more than 4 drugs). The most important results are : - No cooking activity, housework or home gardening - No physical activity - No visual correction - Household income less than 2000 euros.
