Zusammenfassung

Wenn man die Grundlagen der Therapie im höheren Lebensalter darlegt, muß man sieh zunächst überlegen, was man eigentlich mit der Behandlung erreichen möchte. Das Therapieziel in der Geriatrie besteht in der Regel darin, einen Krankheitszustand soweit zu verbessern (gelegentlich auch zu heilen), daß der ältere Patient ein unabhängiges Leben in seiner gewohnten häuslichen Umgebung führen kann.
