Illnesses that linger are an unfortunate accompaniment
of old age. Older persons with multiple, chronic health problems
are often asked to cope with continued symptoms and disability.
Sometimes they can’t help but wonder if more or different
health care could help them do better.
Assistance to seniors and elderly individuals with common geriatric
problems, such as memory loss, incontinence, and falls, is available.
A comprehensive geriatric assessment can determine what conditions
are present. A program that includes evaluation, education and management
will benefit seniors and their families. In this way, the best approach
to care can be found.
