1) Geriatric Treatment

 

We are experiencing an exponential growth of the elderly population in Sri Lanka. One in four of us will be over 60 years of age by the year 2041. Thus there is a dire need for development of health care facilities to cater to the demands of the growing elderly population.

Geriatric Medicine is a specialty in medicine that is concerned with prevention and treatment of diseases in older persons more than 60 years of age. The practice of Geriatric medicine shifts away from a 'disease centered' to a 'person centered' approach.

The elderly person involves a multi modal approach consisting of comprehensive assessment of physical, psychological and social aspects.
