Geriatricians are physicians who work primarily with the elderly. Although they address their patients’ multiple medical problems and chronic illnesses, geriatricians focus primarily on quality of life and functional ability. They determine when it is no longer medically safe for seniors to live alone and counsel them on alternative living arrangements, as well as counsel patients and families on end of life care.
