Hospitalization of the elderly for stroke rehabilitation

Hospitalization of the elderly for stroke rehabilitation

Harefuah 133(5-6): 176-9, 246

This is descriptive, longitudinal study of 400 elderly patients admitted for stroke rehabilitation to a geriatric department dedicated to this purpose. We present the demographic, medical, and impairment and disability characteristics on admission, and the outcome of rehabilitation. Mean stay was 54 days and 2/3 became independent and returned home. Functional score on admission was the best predictor of outcome, but age and social support were also significant.
