The elderly and the medical care community.
Is anyone having issues with the medical care community? With one exception, we can't seem to find a doc who knows much about the special dynamics of elder care, and one who really cares. They don't seem to want to administer tests or diagnose problems. They keep prescribing medicines, some of which we have found to counteract other meds my mom is already. I look up some of the meds that they put her on and find that they are actually dangerous for or at the very least non productive in the elderly. One doc even said " Well you are old, will die soon anyway, you are not a good candidate for this treatment as it would cost too much." I guess medicine has become a business like everything else.
