AnnotationThis paper examines and investigates the problems of the older disabled person in hospital who does not need nursing care. A review of patients who are up and dressed all day in the wards of a geriatric unit is reported. 13% of the patients were disabled-infirm, but could not be discharged because of their infirmity. Specially designed and staffed local authority sheltered accommodation would seem to be the most satisfactory way of dealing with their needs.
