Description

In many countries people over 85 years of age are relocated involuntarily or unplanned to a nursing home. In Switzerland 43% of elderly over 85 years are admitted to nursing homes after hospital discharge. This percentage is higher than in the United States with 32.5% or in Germany with only 19%. Therefore, the aim of this study was to gain an in-depth understanding into admissions to nursing homes and to explore its impact on adaptation.
