Geriatric Care Q & A

What is geriatric care?

Geriatric care treats patients who are age 65 and above. As you grow older, your health concerns can change and may require special attention. 


The caregivers at AFM Healthcare specialize in geriatric care training and are board-certified in internal medicine and family medicine. They give your older family members the individualized, superior treatment they deserve, ensuring that their personalized treatment plan keeps them strong and well.

What does geriatric care focus on?

Your doctor aims to protect the aging members of your family from a wide range of diseases and conditions, such as:


  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Loss of balance
  • Osteoporosis
  • Incontinence
  • Insomnia
  • Loss of hearing

  • Heart issues

When they visit AFM Healthcare, your practitioner consults with them to understand the health concerns or problems they might be facing. All of these issues can be addressed and treated to help keep your loved ones’ health at peak performance.

What are the benefits of geriatric care?

Geriatricians are specialized in their care and know how to help prevent, diagnose, and treat health conditions that affect patients as they age. Just as a parent takes their baby to a pediatrician for specialized care, you want your older family members to see a doctor who effectively treats them for their age-related needs, too.


At AFM Healthcare, the team works together with their geriatric patients to help them get the best possible outcome. The treatment plan includes helpful lifestyle habits that can help your loved ones thrive. 


In addition, your practitioners offer compassion and comfort to help them feel comfortable and hopeful about improving and then maintaining their quality of life.
