In a study that looked at people with TBI older than 65, researchers found that the oldest people with TBI had the shortest stays in the inpatient rehabilitation hospital. They also found that the oldest people had poorer physical and cognitive ratings and were more likely to be referred for home health services when discharged. Compared to men, women had shorter lengths of stay and greater odds of being scheduled for home health services at discharge.
