Geriatric Services

Special Care for the Complex Needs of Older Adults

Geriatrics is the subspecialty of internal medicine concerned with the health and well-being of older adults.

Geriatricians diagnose, treat and manage diseases and conditions that require a special approach when dealing with older adults. They give attention to situations of special concern, including falls, incontinence, preoperative assessment and post-operative management, cerebrovascular disease, dementia, sensory impairment and other cognitive and affective changes that occur with aging.

When You Need a Geriatrician

Geriatricians often become the primary physician for older adults. If this is not the case, your primary physician might refer you to a geriatrician when a problem associated with aging requires special attention. In some cases, a family member might recognize a need for a geriatrician and suggest you consult one.
