Reclast is used to treat osteoporosis. It is used in elderly patients to strengthen bone and prevent fractures.

see http://www.drugs.com/enc/osteoporosis.html

Hip fractures can happen very easily in elderly osteoporosis patients. Once a hip is fractured, not only does the patient lose their independence and mobility, post-operative complications such as blood clots, pneumonia, or infection can put them at very high risk of becoming seriously ill.
