Care of Dependent Geriatric Patients
with Medical Problems at Safar Wellness
What Is Geriatric Care?
Geriatric care is the area of medicine that is focused on caring for our unique health care needs as we age. In the same way that pediatricians specialize in the care of children, geriatrics focuses on the care of seniors. Geriatric care helps senior citizens manage their overall health and well-being and maintain their independence for as long as possible.
Some Common problems in elderly people :-
1. Chronic health conditions
2. Cognitive health
3. Mental health
4. Physical injury
5. Oral health
7. Sensory impairments
8. Substance abuse
9. HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases
10. Bladder control and constipation
Why Geriatric Care Is Important?
Geriatric care is important because it allows senior patients to receive specialized care that understands and takes into consideration their unique needs. As the body passes full maturity, it does not always respond to medications in the same manner as it once did, and as a result, those in this elder population are faced with multiple chronic conditions requiring specialized care management. Additionally, geriatric care allows patients to receive preventative care to encourage prolonged health and independence.
