   <p>Geriatric day hospitals developed rapidly in the United Kingdom in the 1960s
    as an important component of care provision. The model has since been widely
    applied in several Western countries. Day hospitals provide multidisciplinary
    assessment and rehabilitation in an outpatient setting and have a pivotal
