What does “geriatrics” mean?
Geriatrics is a medical specialty that basically means we focus on healthcare for elderly patients. The primary goals of geriatrics are preventing and treating diseases and disabilities. There’s no specific age in which a patient qualifies as “geriatric” – this decision is figured out on a patient-by-patient basis.
