15+ Geriatrics Books for Free! [PDF]

All stages of life are important and deserve attention. With this premise in mind, we have decided to create a collection of geriatrics books in PDF format, since the elders deserve attention and respect, just like the rest.

Like any health-oriented discipline, the care of the elderly seeks their integral well-being, not limiting itself only to the treatment of diseases. You will be able to verify this by researching with our geriatrics books in PDF format.

In that sense, geriatrics can be defined as the branch of medicine that deals with diseases and other problems of the elderly. Consequently, it performs prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the different pathologies that occur as a consequence of aging.

However, with the passage of time, geriatrics has dealt with much more than diseases, since it does not consider the stage of old age as synonymous with these, but as a phase that occurs naturally in people and should be assumed as such.

Several studies have shown that, with proper care, older adults can live this stage with peace of mind and well-being. Thus, geriatrics aims to ensure that they achieve their personal autonomy and can continue to develop in various areas.

Some of the issues that geriatrics and geriatricians deal with are: accidents due to falls, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, dementia and depression, as well as any type of chronic disease. Geriatricians are professionals specialized in the elderly and trained to treat all the changes that occur with it.
