Older Patients, Wiser Care
The challenges of eldercare, through a geriatrician's eyes
As a San Francisco geriatrician, I'm one of only 7,500 American doctors specializing in the unique needs of aging minds and bodies. That's not nearly enough. So the burden of our elders' healthcare needs falls to their stressed, inexperienced caregivers. My goal for Older Patients, Wiser Care: to help you "think more like a geriatrician" yourself. I want you to know key insights about aging issues, like pain, meds, falls, and dealing with multiple health issues -- insights that quality of life depends upon, and that doctors who aren't trained in aging care often miss.
