Why a Geriatrician?

CALL NOW: +1 (860) 536-5302

Geriatrics is a medical specialty focused on the care of older adults. In later life, the body undergoes many physiological changes. These realities, oftentimes added to the existence of disease and attendant medical therapy, make the care of the older adult complex. Detailed evaluation, insightful management and ongoing monitoring is required to promote activity, well being and safety.

Geriatricians are trained to navigate the complexities of caring for seniors through teamwork, cautious therapeutic trials and focus on quality of life verses the conquering of disease.
