Almost 2000 frail subjects admitted in rehabilitative wards of the Geriatric Institute "Camillo Golgi" were analyzed in order to verify the effectiveness of the coordinate clinical, rehabilitative and assistive care on balance and cognitive performances and on depressive symptomatology. Further, associations among these indicators (Tinetti test, Mini Mental Status Examination and Geriatric Depression Scale, respectively) were studied, also according to responsiveness to Tinetti test and course subgroups in the latter test. Our survey underlines the high falls risk of our patients, as well as its frequent coexistence with cognitive impairment and/or depressive symptomatology. These persons don’t make up an homogeneous population: yet, almost everybody benefit from the stay in rehabilitative wards either in motor and cognitive performances or in the affective status.
