At Bright Care, we care about informing our patients about medical issues that are of interest to them, so we want to share the benefits of Geriatric Care with you, a service available at our practice.
According to the United Nations (UN), approximately 37% of Americans suffer from diseases such as cancer, diabetes, or brain disease, which are caused by unbalanced and/or unhealthy diets on a daily basis.
According to the World Health Organization, people are now aging slowly, so countries face significant challenges in ensuring good quality health systems to meet the needs and maintain the health of these demographic groups.
For this reason, geriatric medicine is important, since it is a medical specialty that is in charge of offering adequate aging with full functionality and good quality of life to elderly patients and their communities. Being an elderly patient and being able to enjoy geriatric medicine provides benefits such as:
Receive comprehensive care: All geriatric medicine personnel works with essential values. Dignity, well-being, understanding, and kindness allow them to care for their patients by taking care of their needs and developing a good relationship with them, which achieves comprehensive and complete care.
Quality care: To provide an enriching experience, geriatric physicians take into account that they know their patients and understand that everyone is different and requires different care. They also take into account their life histories and backgrounds to plan and organize their care process and develop a unique care plan for each patient.
Process vision: Geriatric physicians are qualified to offer care according to each case since they understand that each person ages differently. This is why they keep a log of the process to constantly improve care.
Geriatric medicine constantly evaluates the health status of patients, making check-up appointments, laboratory tests, physical exams, incorporating new eating, rest, and physical activity habits, among many other things. At Bright Care, we have an excellent team of professionals specialized in Geriatric Medicine, who are available to help you improve your quality of life.
