Abstract

Hospitalization in old age can be a difficult experience, which requires appropriate support from the health care team. Moreover, an elderly person in rehabilitation often suffers from very complex diagnoses and comorbidities. Given the evolving health system, the increasing economic pressures for productivity and effectiveness, and the shortage of care professionals, there is a risk of technocratic drift and dehumanized care. To promote excellence in care, as recommended internationally and nationally, a person-centered approach is required. Therefore, integrating person-centered models of care based on humanistic values are essential. This could reduce the current dilemmas and the increasing gap between what nurses are doing and what the care should be because nurses are expected to be caring persons. Especially in geriatric rehabilitation service, nurses should adopt a caring attitude and focus on caring relationships.
