Geriatric medicine is a specialty of medicine that deals with the healthcare of elderly people. Its aim is to promote health through the prevention and treatment of diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no fixed rule regarding the age at which patients should be under the care of a geriatrician, but the individual’s needs and a specialist’s availability may affect this decision.
Because the presentation of the symptoms of most diseases in older people is quite different than that in adults, it only makes sense that a specialist should be consulted to deal with them. His opinion can be useful in pinpointing the cause of unexplained medical symptoms as well as behavioural and emotional changes. Geriatric medicine specialists help patients balance different types of medications and determine dosages that will optimize the treatment while also avoiding the symptoms of over dosage or drug interactions.
