Abstract

Geriatric rehabilitation might be the only way for the very old to maintain their participation in social life, since in many cases self care, everyday skills and basic activities of daily living can only be recovered by an integrative treatment approach using a multiprofessional team setting. At the same time limited financial resources in health care have to be considered to make appropriate allocation decisions in geriatric rehabilitation.The goal of this work was to determine whether chronological age is a limiting factor for functional outcome in geriatric rehabilitation.Data from the state of Baden-Württemberg (KODAS data set) from the years 2005-2011 for nonagenarians and data for centenarians from the Geriatrics in Bavaria database (GiB-DAT) project from the years 2003-2011 were compared to the data of the younger seniors undergoing geriatric rehabilitation. For the KODAS data collection, 31 geriatric rehabilitation clinics in Baden-Württemberg were involved. The GiB-DAT project included 59 geriatric rehabilitation clinics in Bavaria. Both databases compare the results of the geriatric assessment at the beginning and at the end of geriatric rehabilitation.The analyzed data are presented with regard to the functional outcome in the very elderly and are discussed with respect to policy implications.
