Geriatric medical care differs from customary medical care because the focus is on the preservation of function and improving the quality of life rather than on investigating, diagnosing, treating and curing specific diseases. This means that the Geriatrician addresses the patient's social and psychological problems as well as his/ her medical problems and also frequently works with the family or caregivers who are assisting the older person.
