Descriptive Information
Brief Title Urgent Care for the Elderly: Impairment and Home Care Services
Official Title Urgent Care for the Elderly: Impairment and Home Care Services
Brief Summary

Elderly population is increasing quickly and their need for health care ressources through emergency care is also growing. While these patients are ageing physical impairment often happens along the way. Apart from senior homes, different types and levels of home care services have been developped in order to overcome or to adapt to these situations.

Our goals are:

  • to assess mortality rate depending on home care services level for the elderly population consulting in the ED or being taken in charge by the Emergency Medical System in France.
  • to describe this population in terms of autonomy, impairment and home care services
