Geriatric Doctor with Patient

Geriatricians or geriatric medical specialists provide medical care to older people and the elderly to treat disease and help prevent illness.  Geriatric doctors focus on preventive treatments and rehabilitation, depending on the type of disease.

In old age the organs and body systems may have decreased function:  hence the importance of having the care of a geriatrician, who helps identify and treat illnesses and diseases common among the elderly.

Geriatricians may also provide advice or recommend treatment for loneliness, depression, isolation, and dependence, which can impact the health of an elderly patient.
