Introduction

Geriatrics is the field of medicine that focuses on the health care of elderly men and women by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities. Geriatric physicians are doctors who provide comprehensive medical care for older adults and are experts trained in the ageing process.

Geriatric physicians treat and diagnose medical, social and emotional complications in older adults. They also focus on other health concerns such as incontinence, memory problems and other chronic conditions.

Other medical conditions treated by Geriatricians may include:

  • Cancer

  • Sleep disorders
