The 20th century has definitely managed to add extra candles to our birthday cakes, but is the quality of those extra years that good??? We have managed to add years to our life, but have we managed to add life to those years ???
We at Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital are all set to change the way we look at, hear about, think about & experience ageing.
Geriatrics, or geriatric medicine, is a speciality that focuses on the health care of the elderly people. India, currently has the second largest population of older adults, and most of this population remains largely underserved. Senior citizens encounter multiple health issues that gradually lead to major morbidity and mortality in the community. Issues faced by the elderly are most often very challenging as they present in very unusual ways with multiple pathologies interacting simultaneously. They are prone to the side effects of poly-pharmacy. Elderly issues range from falls, fractures, urine and stool incontinence, pressure sores, joint pains, dementia, Parkinson’s disease to emotional, social, psychiatric, memory related issues.
