Senior health

Senior health, also referred to as geriatrics, is the medical treatment and care of the elderly. As we age, changes in our bodies and minds occur. Senior health refers to the maintenance of the physical and mental state. Specialized treatment may occur in seniors when diseases or disorders of the body and/or mind are identified.
