Much of the literature on caregiver concern for falls neglects to account for the perspective of the care recipient. Yang (2019) conducted a content analysis of the language used by caregivers and care recipients to describe FoF during semi-structured interviews. Findings revealed that both the caregiver and care recipient used words like "worry" and "fear" as well as "caution" and "aware" to describe the fear. Caregivers were more concerned about the care recipient falling than the care recipient themselves were, and caregivers used "we" when discussing fear where the care recipient used "I". This was the first study to investigate the dyadic relationship of caregivers and care recipients regarding their respective FoF; however, it did not provide an explanation of the complex interaction of the dyad and how their fears may influence each other
