Dr. Hoffman’s research focuses on older adult falls, informal and formal caregiving, and hospital readmissions. His work on falls assesses how different research methodologies impact fall prevalence and Medicare expenditure estimates and how caregiving reduces fall risk among disabled and cognitively impaired older adults. His caregiving work explores dyadic interdependencies between caregivers and their care recipients.
