Geriatrics, or geriatric medicine is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician, or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist. It is important to note the difference between geriatrics, the care of aged people, and gerontology, which is the study of the aging process itself.


The Geriatric Medicine Clinic looks after people who have complex conditions associated with aging. These could be

memory loss, mobility problems and falls, bowel or bladder difficulties, poor nutrition or unexplained weight loss,Urinary Incontinence, Balance and Posture Treatment,Stroke and Neuro Rehabilitation, Fall Prevention,Vertigo, Dizziness as well as other challenges coping with multiple illnesses and medications.

We provide special assessments for older adults, and when it's needed and appropriate, we put our patients in touch with community support services.
