Geriatrics: Specialized Care for Older Adults 
 
 
 
 
 

As we age, our health care needs change and certain illnesses and disabilities are more common in older adults.

Some older adults develop a number of health issues including frailty, incontinence, frequent falls, problems with memory, dementia and medication-related side effects.
