A special issue of Geriatrics (ISSN 2308-3417).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2017)

Stroke is a common condition in older age; the majority of people who suffer stroke are over 65 years of age. Stroke in older people has a major impact on individuals, as well as their families and health economy. It remains one of the major causes of mortality and morbidity in this age group.
Ageing is associated with increasing physical and mental frailty. This is, in part, contributed by prevalence of co-morbid conditions in older age.
We are interested in publishing articles in a wide range of aspects on the impact of age on stroke and the impact of stroke on older people.
This Special Issue will cover a wide range of topics relevant to this topic from any research areas, from basic science to clinical trials.
We are particularly keen on highlighting novel and innovative approaches in the prevention, management, and rehabilitation (physical, as well as mental) in this patient population. This Special Issue will also focus on challenges we face globally in an increasingly ageing population.
