Geriatrics is a sub-specialty of medicine that focuses on health care of the elderly. So being Geriatric does not imply that you are sick or ailing. You have simply graduated to the next level of healthcare…. prior, to what else? Death.
I’m not dead, but unfortunately, I have slipped into the area of ailing. I began to have joint problems which led to full knee replacements in both legs. In addition, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. This explains why I have become somewhat grouchy. There’s more, but no need to go there. After all, I‘m over 80 years old, which also entitles me to be, at times, annoyed, angry and complain often.
My Wife, Gwynne agrees.
Some items you may (will) need as you become Geriatric.
Wireless earphones for watching TV, so you can turn up the sound and keep others happy.
A cane. The HURRYCANE is my choice.
A good flashlight because it gets harder and harder to see in the dark.
An all-terrain walker which are called Rollators.
As a Geriatric, regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health.
This is my combination rowing machine and recumbent bike.
