Product Description

Author: Roger Weise, MD

About the Book: This book is written for the average nonmedical person who wishes to understand and care for older adults. This is not a medical textbook; there are few necessary references. All of the information can be easily verified with a simple Internet search. The text I have provided is a combination of expert medical knowledge, clinical experience, and common sense.

About the Author: After receiving Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Zoology, I began medical school in 1974. I graduated in 1978 and then completed a residency in Internal Medicine and a fellowship in Geriatrics. Medical school and residency taught me all about diagnosing and treating disease, often but not exclusively, in older adults. My Geriatric Medicine fellowship taught me that older adults are special people; having special needs and unique health issues. I discovered that older adults are fun to talk to; interesting to be with and exciting to care for. I experienced the distinct privilege of being physician to some of the most interesting people on the planet. They taught me that healing is better than fixing and that the older adult spirit is the most important component of the aging process and their personhood.
