Care of geriatric population or elder care visit
Americans are living longer and living well for longer periods of time. This has created a relatively new and growing area of healthcare and provider services, known as elder care. Elder care encompasses a wide variety of issues, including choosing an appropriate healthcare provider to care for an aging patient, specialty care for chronic disease management and making decisions about moving an elderly person from the home environment to a residential care setting.

Chronic disease management
A chronic disease develops slowly, is long lasting and typically worsens over time. Some chronic diseases cannot be prevented, but many are linked to lifestyle choices that are within your ability to change. If you have a chronic disease, it is best to partner with your healthcare provider for ongoing health care maintenance. Examples chronic diseases include, but are not limited to, heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, COPD, and arthritis.
