Aged Care

Helping the elderly live better lives

The word ‘geriatric’ may carry a stigma for some older individuals, referring to negative beliefs about aging. When people hear ‘geriatric,’ they may think of frailty or declining health, leading to discomfort or devaluation. Older adults may feel embarrassed or reluctant to seek care, fearing they’re seen as less important. This can lead to hesitation in discussing age-related concerns openly.

Geriatricians, or aged care specialists, WANT to see healthy outcomes for their older patients and their focus is to promote healthy aging, manage complex medical conditions, and improve the quality of life for older adults. They can make life better in many ways:

Health check-ups

A geriatrician will give you thorough check-ups to see how your body, mind and functional abilities are doing, and they listen carefully to any concerns you might have. That way, they can catch any health problems early and help you feel your best.

Medicine help

Sometimes, taking lots of different medicines can be confusing and cause problems. Geriatricians are experts at making sure your medicines work well together and don’t cause any bad side effects.

Staying healthy

They help you stay ahead of common health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart problems. By keeping an eye on these things, they help you stay strong and happy.

Preventing falls

Falls are a significant concern for elderly people, so they work with you to keep you safe. They might suggest exercises, changes around the house, or even adjustments to your medicines to prevent falls.

Keeping your brain sharp

If you’re worried about your memory or thinking, they’re there to help. They can find ways to manage memory problems and give support to you and your family.

Getting moving

If moving around is tough, they’ll help you find ways to make it easier. They might suggest exercises, special programs, or tools to help you get around better.

Feeling better

If you’re in pain, they’ll find ways to help you feel better, whether it’s with medicine, exercises, or other treatments.
