Senior Health

Geriatric health is the term used to denote the health of seniors. Senior health is concerned with the health of elderly people and is aimed to treat and prevent diseases and disabilities. Aged people have to be cared well. As one ages, the body undergoes declination and as a result, the physical functioning slows down. Mental health also deteriorates to create confusions and cognitive impairment. As a result, the elderly people may not be able to realize the seriousness of their illness or they may not be able to express their symptoms clearly. Added to that, a trivial health problem is sufficient to cause a serious impact on their body. The physician has to be very careful while administering medicines so as to minimize their adverse effects on the body.
