There’s no denying that as we age, our bodies can change and weaken. After many years of wear and tear, our joints, bones, and muscles aren’t what they used to be. Fortunately, with proper care you can manage health concerns so you can keep up with the things you love.

Geriatricians are physicians who specialize in taking care of older adults. Their unique training helps them manage multiple conditions that may be present and provide care that allows their patients to live fuller, more independent lives.

Here you’ll learn about common health conditions that geriatricians see in older adults and how to recognize, prevent and treat them. Topics include:

  • Recognizing the signs of Alzheimer’s disease

  • Addressing signs of dementia
