dc.description.abstractThe objective of this study was to explore which personal and environmental variables are the best predictors of reintegration to normal living in older adults discharged from an in-patient rehabilitation unit. More than fifteen biopsychosocial characteristics of 94 people over 60 years old were evaluated with reliable and valid tests a few days before discharge from rehabilitation. The participants' reintegration to normal living was evaluated three months later (n=86) with the Reintegration to Normal Living Index. From multivariate regression analyses, functional independence, balance, grip strength and general well-being are the best predictors and explain 26% and 27% of the variance in reintegration to normal living. This study suggests that by increasing efforts to maximize functional independence, balance, grip strength and well-being, rehabilitation professionals can expect older adults to achieve a greater degree of participation in their activities and social roles and maybe contribute to their quality of live.fr
