Geriatric rehabilitation is a cornerstone of every treatment plan in elderly persons in the inpatient, day clinic and outpatient settings. Geriatric patients tend to be more in need of care and to have a loss of domestic independence due to multimorbidities. The goal of geriatric rehabilitation is to preserve and/or restore the disease-related functional deficits in order to guarantee mobility and activities of daily living (ADL) in addition to curative treatment. Structural prerequisites in all geriatric units are the comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) and the existence of an interdisciplinary geriatric team. Geriatric rehabilitative treatment is based on functionality (ICF) and is therefore indicated in a wide spectrum of diseases. The demographic shift necessitates an increase in geriatric treatment structures with innovative concepts such as geronto-traumatological interdisciplinary units or geriatric outpatient office groups with a better networking of different care structures.
