What is geriatrics?

Older swimmersGeriatrics is concerned solely with physical and mental disorders that occur with the elderly. As our body ages, so do our healthcare needs change which is why is important to have dedicated support from a physician specialised in understanding how these changes affect us and what is the best way to lead a healthy life.

The focus of geriatric medicine includes the promotion of: 

  • Good health and wellbeing to prevent illness
  • Disability and long term infirmity among older people
  • To treat illness when it does occur
  • To enable older people to live a full and independent life as possible.

Geriatricians focus on a broad range of old-age aspects such as falls, immobility, incontinence and,  cerebral ageing but also illnesses like strokes, heart disease, infections, diabetes, dementias and delirium.
