Geriatrics specializes in the care of older adults, considering factors such as aging, chronic diseases, polypharmacy (use of multiple medications), and complex medical conditions.

When to check Geriatrics?

It is advisable to consult with a geriatrician in various situations related to the health and well-being of older adults. Some of these situations include:

  • Comprehensive health status assessment: Geriatricians specialize in the care of older adults and are trained to conduct comprehensive assessments of the physical, mental, and functional health status of older individuals. This is especially important for early detection and management of common health problems in this stage of life such as chronic diseases.
  • Management of chronic diseases: Many older adults suffer from multiple chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, among others.
  • Prevention of falls and injuries: Falls are one of the leading causes of injuries and disability in older adults. A geriatrician can conduct a fall risk assessment and recommend prevention strategies such as balance exercises, home modifications, and medication reviews to reduce the risk of falls and injuries.
  • Cognitive problems and dementia: Memory and cognitive problems are common in old age and can be early signs of dementia or other neurodegenerative conditions. A geriatrician can conduct specialized assessments to diagnose and treat these problems, as well as provide guidance and support to patients and their families.
