What is Geriatrics about ?

Geriatrics is the branch of medicine concerned with the diagnoses and treatment - or sometimes just management - of the conditions and disorders that occur in old age.
The term geriatrics also refers to the medical care of the elderly generally.

Compare geriatrics with the related area of gerontology (which involves study of the changes that occur in the mind and body during the ageing process - and the challenges and opportunities for psychological and spiritual growth associated with them).

More about Geriatrics:

Geriatrics is important because older adults may react to illness and diseases differently from younger adults. There are also some conditions that are specifically associated with the later stages of ageing - which will now apply to an increasing proportion of modern Western populations in which life-expectancy is longer than for previous generations, and continues to increase.
For example, health concerns commonly found in found in the frail elderly may include incontinence, frequent falls, memory problems, and the side effects caused by multiple medications.
