Geriatric care in 'crisis mode'
American medicine is already in a crisis mode when it comes to geriatric care, and the problem will only become worse unless new approaches are found, experts say. For starters, there has been a huge decrease in the number of practicing geriatricians, and only 300 new ones are trained each year. That, despite the fact that the number of people over the age of 65 will double in the next 20 years.
