In brief: Depends
On alot of things.
Whenever we offer a medical intervention, we review their functional and cognitive status to determine if there ould be a significant benefit for this individaul no matter how old. The very old are susceptible to delirum and a multitude of hospital acquired complications if not monitored closely. Any functional decline will take many times longer to improve then to lose, etc.
