Barolin, G. S.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v19 n3 p201-18 Sep 1996
This discussion of geriatric rehabilitation stresses the importance of holistic and permanent rehabilitation with a fluent transition from the acute phase to the rehabilitation phase under one specialist's care and in one institution. Recommendations include mixed age groups in one ward; systematic education of relatives; follow-up rehabilitation services; an interdisciplinary approach; and a rational distribution of resources.
