Geriatrics

Geriatrics is a special branch of medicine that focuses on health care of elderly people. It promotes health in older adults by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities. People who are growing old are more susceptible to several medical complications such as neurological, respiratory, orthopaedic and cardiovascular diseases. Geriatrics differs from adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. Geriatricians focus primarily in the context of multiple chronic conditions, and on preserving function. Elderly patients frequently require an assortment of services with medicinal services and different issues. Geriatric patients sometimes may require home care, which will be given by organizations that utilize nurses and other health care professionals.
