Summary
This book creates greater awareness and offer practical guidance for clinicians working with patients over the age of 85, the most senior segment of the aging population. As the population around the world ages, health systems and other infrastructures struggle to build a workforce that is trained to handle the unique challenges presented by geriatric patients. This is especially true in he oldest old, who are healthier and living longer than previous generations. This book is designed to cover general considerations, management of chronic diseases and geriatric syndromes and in the context of limited funding, advocate for optimal care in late-life which respects the dignity and autonomy of the oldest old. Each chapter provides a summary of important and essential information and includes case studies to clearly demonstrate each situation, key points and algorithms to facilitate step- by- step approach to solve problems. Unlike any other resource, this text is the first to focus particularly on this portion of aging patients and covers topics that range from elder abuse, competency, immunity, malnutrition, frailty and a wide array of topics that present in the geriatric population. Written by experts in the field, Advanced Age Geriatric Care is a valuable resource for geriatricians, primary care physicians, researchers, medical undergraduates, public health officials, nursing home administrators, social workers and all clinicians working with the most senior patients of the ageing population
