Abstract
Even though many older people will live longer in good health, many will also be confronted with frailty, multi-morbidity, cognitive decline, disability and serious illnesses in the last years of their life. The end-of-life trajectories of frail older people have a major impact on the care that needs to be provided. Older people develop different physical, psychological, and/or social needs in varying intensity during the last years of life. Moreover, determining a clear terminal phase of life is difficult in this population. In this commentary, we aim to highlight the importance of an integrated palliative, geriatric and rehabilitative care approach for older people, emphasizing the importance of setting-specific and cross-setting interventions. We stress the importance of person-centred care planning with the older patient and the role of their families, communities and society as a whole. We identify and formulate some of the research gaps that can be addressed in the near future.
