Geriatric Medicine

Geriatric Medicine Overview

Geriatric Medicine is a speciality that deals with the complex medical and psychological problems of older adults. The chronological age of 65 years has been accepted worldwide as a definition of elderly. In response to the rapidly aging population, Geriatrics has emerged as an area of medicine focusing on health promotion and the treatment of disease and disabilities in later life. Elderly patients often have multiple co-morbidities, use multiple medications, and may face social disadvantages, emotional vulnerability, or financial challenges. Given the types of problems that the elderly and their families face, the department of Geriatric Medicine at Manipal Hospitals employ varied skills to treat challenging acute and chronic diseases. The Geriatric physicians here at Manipal Hospitals are concerned with health problems that frequently affect older adults, such as pain, falls, memory loss, urinary incontinence, and medication side effects (polypharmacy). Another important aspect of Geriatric Medicine is evaluating an elderly patient's ability to care for him or herself (e.g., prepare and eat meals, bath, dress) – Cognitive and functional assessment. The department of Geriatric Medicine at Manipal Hospitals focus on all aspects of health care and work as part of a health care team to address issues that affect the elderly.
