Geriatrics, medicine at the service of the elderly patient

Geriatrics is the medical science that studies man as a whole. This is the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases of the elderly and which aims to get to know the patient as a whole, from his clinical history to his lifestyle to the environment in which he lives.

At the accredited private hospital Quisisana it is possible to undergo a geriatric visit in Ferrara. And thus undertake a path of global care, dictated by a multidisciplinary approach and also aimed at patient care.

When to book a geriatric visit

The geriatric visit at Quisisana, for a fee and not in agreement with the National Health System, is carried out by dr. Stefano Romagnoli in a structure of excellence. A nursing home that, since its inception, has made the careful selection of its specialists a true mantra.

When to book a geriatric visit? There are no precise alarm bells or symptoms of diseases to consider. It could all start with a simple request for help, for example when the patient begins to experience situations of malaise such as loss of self-sufficiency.

Patients at Quisisana are followed by a geriatrician who has the ability to adhere to different and personalized therapeutic schemes aimed at solving the various clinical problems that may arise. The doctor carries out a first multidimensional assessment also making use of evaluation tests of the functional, cognitive and emotional state to begin the therapeutic path in a complete way. During the multidimensional geriatric visit, in fact, all the information useful to outline the patient's clinical picture is collected and a complete objective clinical examination is carried out.

A geriatric visit is recommended for anyone over 65 years of age.

Which pathologies the geriatrician deals with

The geriatric path that patients in the outpatient clinic undertake is complete, as it is subject to the framing of the current problems. Particular attention is paid to aspects such as:

  • the existence of chronic diseases
  • the after-effects of acute diseases such as stroke
  • falls
  • infections
  • imbalances
  • food and/or poor nutrition problems
  • osteopenia
  • depression
  • insomnia

The geriatrician often works in synergy with other professionals such as the general practitioner, physiotherapist, nutritionist and nurse. This union of skills makes it possible to face the frailty of the elderly, undertaking a unique and at the same time multi-therapeutic path. The patient's family members will also be involved in the geriatric visit, so as to provide valid emotional support to the patient.
