The older adult population in Lebanon is anticipated to double by year 2030. The health care resources available for the geriatric population is limited and there is much reliance on the social support of family caregivers. Older adults have double the rate of hospital utilization in comparison to the regular Lebanese population where 4.5% are hospitalized more than once per year. This study aims to describe self-reported quality of life (QoL) among hospitalized patients "with palliative care needs" and investigate the relationship with its four health domains.
