A Geriatrician

Visiting a geriatrician is very important to any older person who wishes to maintain good health. Geriatricians are doctors who specialize in the care of older adults. They have special knowledge of diseases that commonly occur in older people, such as: 

  • Falls
  • Osteoporosis
  • Diabetes 
  • Urinary Incontinence 
  • Dementia 

The main purpose of a geriatrician is to deal with this type of problems and diseases, helping to prevent or manage them if they are already present, they are also responsible for helping them to cope with the aging process both medically and psychologically so that it is easier for them to adapt to the new social processes in which they will enter. 

They can help people over 65 years to take care of their health and avoid chronic and degenerative diseases, they also know the proper use of multiple medicines that are usually needed by older adults, so they help to avoid the misuse of it. On the other hand, if a person already has a disease, the geriatrician will help him to treat it in the best possible way so that he or she can continue living life with the highest possible level of quality. 

For older people is very helpful to receive personalized attention, because just as children are taken to a pediatrician because they require some kind of specialized care, older adults also need to care especially for the type of issues that can arise at that age, in this case by a geriatrician.
