Have you ever actually spoken with a Geriatrician? Geriatricians are medical doctors who are specialists in ‘geriatrics’ which means that they treat patients specifically over the age of 65. Over 300,000 Americans are turning 65 every MONTH! What makes a geriatrician different from an internist or family practitioner? They are specialists in over 65 bodies and minds. They understand how medications and illness affect us differently than when we were younger, and treat accordingly. Unfortunately, there are only 6,000 Geriatricians in the US to treat so many patients. Fortunately, Dr. Landsverk is in our area and will share her experiences and observations with us. She will discuss ‘aging well’ and what that means regarding nutrition, exercise and social engagement, as well as medications. Bring your questions and challenges and be ready for a very interesting and educational evening geared to elder care professionals and anyone interested in the issues of aging."
