As you age, you may need special care for your health. Geriatrics is a health field focused on caring for seniors, generally aged 65 or older.
Geriatricians are healthcare professionals specializing in caring for conditions that often affect older adults. A change in mobility, eating habits, mental status or behavior might require these services. A need for coordinated care can also be addressed. The goal of senior care is to:
- Improve health and quality of life.
- Prevent illness and injury.
- Help seniors maintain independence.
- Use a patient-centered approach by discussing personal goals of care, including advance-care planning.
As you or your loved ones age, consider seeing a geriatric or senior health care specialist.
