“I’m enormously thankful to the Health in Aging Foundation and AGS members for helping families like mine. My dad is extremely frail and lives with multiple medical conditions, but we are much better supported now that we’ve added a geriatrician to his care team. She has been patient, thorough, compassionate, resourceful, wise, and so much more. Current medicine won’t and can’t solve all dad’s challenges, but geriatricians like ours understand that any dearth of treatments can be balanced by an abundance of care and by empowering families and caregivers with resources informed by geriatrics expertise. Until there are cures, our hope and dad’s quality of life depend on that comprehensive geriatrics care.”
