Abstract
Hospitalization in older patients is frequently associated with functional decline. Hospital factors and inadapted process of care are factors leading to this decline. Acute care units specifically developed for older patients can prevent functional decline. These units usually include a comprehensive geriatric evaluation, an interdisciplinary meeting, protocols for the treatment of geriatric syndromes and specific teaching for the care team. Globally, patients' cares are organized to preserve and improve functional performances. This article presents a pilot unit inspired by this model.
