Frequently Asked Questions

At what age am I considered elderly?

Typically, the age to be considered elderly is between 65 and 70. However, geriatric care is not dependent on you being over 65 years of age. Geriatric conditions can begin to manifest as young as 50, and we recognize this by seeing patients beginning at 50 years of age.
