dc.description.abstractTen geriatric problems which eventually lead to impairment, disability or handicap with progressive deterioration of bodily structure and function are discussed. At the geriatric clinic at Tygerberg Hospital, Parowvallei, CP, 1150 patients were examined to distinguish the low-risk patients with no serious impairment of health from those suffering from disabilities of moderate nature and severe life-threatening handicaps. The increasing number of geriatric patients attending the clinic and the associated administrative problems have made this study necessary.en_ZA
