Geriatry-Related Diseases

Geriatric diseases include diseases that appear only in old age, diseases that persist up to old age, and other diseases that occur in people of all ages. Because the body of an old person is very different from the body of a younger adult, diseases affect older people differently, and a geriatric physician is the best person to consult for them.

Join our online support group for people with geriatric diseases and their families. Ask your questions to experts and share your experiences.
