DEPARTMENT OF GERIATRIC MEDICINE
 
                   The unprecedented increase in human longevity in the 20th century has resulted in the phenomenon of population ageing all over the world. Countries with large population such as India have large numbers of people aged 65 years or more. This population has tripled over the last 50 years in India and will increase relentlessly in the near future. In 2001, the proportion of older people was 7.7% which will increase to 8.14% in 2011 and 8.94% in 2016.
                   According to 2001 census, there were 75.93 million Indians above the age of sixty years; the projection for next five censuses till the year 2051 are: 95.30 millions (2011), 133.32 millions (2021), 178.59 (2031), and 300.96 Millions (2051).
                   The problems faced by this segment of the population are numerous owing to the social and cultural changes that are taking place, within our society and the inherent vulnerability of the elderly to develop disease. One major area of concern is the Health of the elderly which requires a comprehensive care of providing preventive, curative and rehabilitative services. Accessibility of health services is very vital for the Elderly.
                   The specific health problems commonly described among the elderly often leading to loss of functional capacity include; sensory impairment of Vision & Hearing, Mobility disorders, cardiovascular diseases, Cerebrovascular diseases, falls, osteoporosis, diabetes mellitus, cancers, nutritional disorders and mental health problems. The elderly generally suffer from multiple medical illnesses along with social and psychological problems.
                   In this scenario, there is a need for specialized geriatric health services which recognizes the elderly as being a vulnerable population. The service must educate, to develop and maintain lifestyles which are healthy. It must provide a counselling and medical care facility to look after the needs of the sick elderly. This service should include acute care, long term care and community based rehabilitation.
                   The Department of Geriatric Medicine at Govt. Chengalpattu Medical College, Chengalpattu was started in May 2011 with one post of Associate Professor . The out patient clinic functions three days week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 10.00 AM to 12.00 PM. It is referral OP, Patients are referred from Medical OPD. The sick elderly are admitted in the ward an treated. Medicines are given fortnightly for the convenience of the elders .
                   Apart from thorough clinical examination, a comprehensive Geriatric assessment is done for the elderly attending the out patient department. The number of patients utilizing the out patient service has been steadily increasing for the past few years.
