Summary In terms of both healthcare for the aging and the elderly, nurses have been on the forefront of pioneering efforts to make sure that the elderly are not forgotten, and that they receive the best overall healthcare possible, whether they are in their homes, retirement villages, hospitals, or nursing care facilities. The geriatric nurse - a registered nurse who specializes in gerontology - is a core member of the healthcare team that provides services to the elderly and make sure that their other needs are met in areas such as family, education, disease prevention, promoting health and helping to organize resources available for elderly patients.
