The practice of geriatrics deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease in the elderly. Emphasis is placed on maintaining independence, communication with the patient and keeping the patient as active as possible. The geriatrician pays special attention to the altered presentation of diseases in the elderly and the side effects of medicines, and coordinates the care of the elderly person.
