Geriatric medicine is a specialty that is based on improving health care for elderly people. It supports healthy improvement in older adults by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities that often come with aging.
The aim of providing geriatric care is the following –
• Maintenance of healthy function
• Detecting severe disease at an early stage
• Prevention of deterioration of an existing health problem
In India, the elderly suffer from a dual burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases besides impairment of special sensory functions like vision, hearing, and other degenerative diseases. Since their healthcare needs are enormous, they need special geriatric clinics where they are comprehensively assessed and rehabilitated. Other helpful aids to their betterment are physiotherapy, psychological support, and constant medical help. In case of a decline in functional or cognitive status, they may need hospitalization and full-time geriatric nursing.
