Basic Principles in Geriatrics
1Aging is not a disease
There are plenty of health progressions which
happen once the aging starts. There is a myth
which exists that aging comes along with various
diseases and illnesses. But, this is not true.
Seniors can be quite healthy too, at this phase
of life. Factors like lifestyle changes, food
habits and weather will have an impact on the
health of the individuals. Aging itself cannot
be mistaken as a disease. It is supposed to be
embraced as a transition into a wiser state.
2 A Multidisciplinary Approach
This area of specialization operates on various
dimensions of health and wellbeing. It is
necessary to give the right care and support to
our beloved seniors. The collaboration with
professionals like nurses, rehab specialists,
social workers, dietitians brings togeth- er
geriatrics, making it an interdisciplinary field.
There are parallel levels of communica- tion
which goes in different levels to understand the
conditions and state of well-being. The
associative approach that emphasizes on
interaction and alliance in geriatric care is
essential for seniors and caregivers.
3Geriatric Care At Home
The advancement of the geriatric care industry
has spread access to medical services at the
convenience of ones home. The medical
professionals are rising towards an
understanding that the seniors require medi- cal
assistance near them.The benefits of having care
at hand is that, there is reduction in waiting
time, regular consultations and avoiding the
hassles of travel. This would enable the
monitoring the possible changes in the health
conditions, leading to early diagnosis and
treatment. The convenience and flexibility of
accessing healthcare at home, can make seniors
open up willingly on their health concerns.
Medical conditions go undiagnosed and untreated
in geriatric patients
Sometimes, there are instances where older
individuals, care providers and health
professionals mistakenly attribute diseases or
illness to old age. Reassessing the medical
condition through second expertise is a potential
way to rule out any serious illness. There is
the necessity of awareness and learning in
various geriatric issues to clear out myths and
fill in the spaces of doubts. A systematic
screening will assist in detect- ing undiagnosed
diseases and enable early medical treatments. The
geriatrics syn- dromes such as gait,
instability, falls, pain and malnutrition stand
in need of effective diagnosis to facilitate
optimal health management.
Physical rehabilitation for Seniors at Home
The word rehabilitation usually has a less
positive connotation. The general associations
with the words rehab or rehabilitation refers
to a system or institution that aid individuals
in getting out of an addic- tion or a
psychological stigma. But physical rehabilitation
is essential and has scope for bettering the
physical mobility and dexterity of
seniors. Physical rehabilitation is the
combination of right set of exercises, therapies
and treatment modalities that can help seniors
get over the impact sustained from a surgery or
illness. The time spent in recovery from such
conditions can be quite daunting. Rehabilitative
strategies not only speed up the recovery
process effectively but also help elders get
back to a healthier state easily. The different
aspects that may be involved, depending on the
seniors recovery requirements, in
rehabilitation for seniors include
  • Pain management
  • Improvement in mobility
  • Therapy for paralysis, speech-language issues,
    swallowing disabilities
  • Rehabilitation to deal with the aftereffects of a
  • Injury rehabilitation in the cases of burns,
    accidents, etc.
  • Rehabilitation after a fall
  • Rehabilitation to cope with conditions like
    arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Geriatric counselling to balance the
    psychological state of seniors
