Abstract

Major aims of rehabilitation in geriatrics are related to the ICIDH classification. Therefore, scales of functional competence and measures of handicap are predominantly used for outcome measurements, the Barthel-Index, for example. Further important aims and criteria are reductions in the demand of nursing care and institutionalized care. Studies of the impact of geriatric rehabilitation on quality of life are still lacking.
