1 doctor agrees
In brief: It varies
To determine the best result of recovery, it depends on his overall health status, cognitve status, the level of fraility, and his baseline functional statis (bathing, walking, eating, transferring, dressing).
It is recommended to have geriatric consultation to determine the level of recovery.
