Since 2011 the Unit of Post Acute Long-Term Care started the activity in Sassari, Sardinia region, initially as Local Health Care Public Service and currently integrated in the University Hospital. The purpose of this paper was to describe the main care methods based on a comprehensive geriatric approach and the multidimensional prognostic index to stratify the risk of mortality and other negative outcomes. With a strong emphasis on nutritional problems, we analyzed the correlations among malnutrition and motility, cognitive impairment, comorbidity and major diseases, and psychosocial determinants.
