Syncope and falls are a common concern in older adults with dementia [1,2]. In Literature, great importance has been established in the recognition of causes of falling in older patients, in particular in frail people with dementia, in order to create specific preventive plans to reduce mortality and to improve quality of life. Following the idea of better understanding falls in the most difficult population in clinical practice, that is geriatric patients affected by dementia, in 2012, the “Syncope and Dementia (SYD) Registry” was created to investigate the etiology of syncope and falls in patients with dementia [3].
