Abstract
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the common health related problems in people aged 65 years and older and to evaluate these problems in combination with the International Classification of Functioning (ICF) checklist and the other commonly used tools in geriatrics practice. Materials-Methods: In this population-based, cross-sectional, and descriptive study, a total of 200 people aged 65 years or older who lived in a small town in Istanbul, were randomly selected for the study. Data were collected from participants through a face-to-face interview at home visits. ICF Disability and Health (WHODAS-II), Short Form-36 (SF-36), Mini-Mental State Examination, Geriatric Depression Scale, Barthel Index, and Mini Nutritional Assessment were used for evaluating functioning, disability, quality of life, cognitive functions, depression, dependence in the activities of daily living, and nutrition. Results: The mean age of the participants was 72.3(plus or minus)5.3 years. The body functions component of the ICF checklist had the largest number of the impaired categories. The most impaired categories were 'energy, and drive functions' (78.5%) and 'carrying and moving objects' (54.5%), for body functions component and activities and participation component, respectively. The most impaired domain of WHODAS-II was the nullgetting aroundnull domain. The most impaired SF-36 subscale was the emotional role. Severe cognitive impairment and depression rates were 6.0 and 24.0%, respectively. While the risk of malnutrition was found in 9.5% of the sample, 3.0% had definite malnutrition. Conclusion: In this selected sample of persons aged 65 years or older, impairments particularly in mental functions, sensory functions, and pain and domestic life areas were identified. In addition to these findings, many of the persons had different levels of dependence, malnutrition, depression and cognitive decline. Further research should include studies with more participants to investigate health related problems of elderly people for comprising new approaches on rehabilitation.
