Aging is inevitable. What you can change is your attitude about what aging means to you. Geriatric Care is defined as the medical care of older or elderly people. The scope of the care has changed to include not just the medical needs, but also the psychological and social needs of seniors. More than ever before, geriatric care encompasses a holistic approach to coping with aging and its effects.
Some factors remain unchanged. The body ages over time and use. Body systems may begin to show their genetics and other signs of aging. One will experience the signs of aging such as loss of muscle mass and wrinkling. Try as you may, ones body still feels the effects.
