Geriatric medicine differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body. During old age, the decline of various organ systems requires special focus and attention.
Geriatric medicine distinguishes between diseases and the effects of normal aging. For example, renal impairment may be a part of aging, but kidney failure and urinary incontinence are not. At Ouilikon Medical Associates, we aim to treat existing illness and to work with this special population to achieve healthy aging. We focus on achieving our patient’s highest healthy priorities in the context of existing chronic conditions. Our goal is to preserve function and maintain quality of life.
