JUNE 25, 2014 THE PRESS PAGE / 4Trwrwr T-~Tt /~ w ~ ,fwlr~ unique and, oftentimes, multiple health concerns of older adults. Just as a pediatrician specializes in caring for children, a geriatrician is trained to provide care for seniors, usually over age 65. While most doctors, and even general practitioners, are trained to focus on a person's particular ill- ness or disease, geriatricians are trained to look at all aspects that can affect elderly patients - not just the physical symptoms. They also often work with a team of other health care professionals like geriatric- trained nurses, rehabilitation thera- pists, nutritionists, social workers and psychiatrists to provide care. And, they will coordinate treat- ments among a patient's specialists. Patients who can benefit from seeing a geriatrician are elderly seniors with multiple health and age- related problems such as cardio- vascular disease, stroke, confusion and memory problems, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, hypertension, depression, respiratory problems, osteoporosis, arthritis, chronic pain, mobility issues, in- continence, vision and heating im- pairment, and trouble with balance and falls. Geriatricians are also particular- ly adept at tackling medication problems. Because many seniors, like your mom, take multiple med- ications at the same time for various health conditions, and because ag- ing bodies often absorb and me- tabolize drugs differently than younger adults, unique side effects and drug interactions are not un- common. A geriatrician will evalu- ate and monitor you mom's med- ications to be sure they are not af- fecting her in a harmful way. Geriatricians can also help their patients and families determine their long-term care needs, like how long they can remain in their own homes safely without assis- tance, and what type of services may be necessary wtien they do need some extra help. But not all seniors need to see a geriatrician. Seniors who have few health problems are just fine seeing their primary care physician. Find a Geriatrician Unfortunately, there's a shortage of geriatricians in the U.S., so de- pending on where you live, fmding one may be challenging. To locate one in your area, visit the American Board of Family Medicine website at where you can do a search online. Oruse Medicare's on- line Physician Compare tool. Just go to and type in your zip code, or city and state, then type in "Geriatric Med- icine" in the "What are you search- ing for?" box. You can also get this information by calling Medicare at 800-633-4227. Keep in mind, though, that lo- cating a geriatrician doesn't guar- antee your mom will be accepted as a patient. Many doctors already have a full patient roster and don't accept any new patients. You'll need to call the individual doctor's office to find out. Send your senior questions to." Savvy Senior, PO.

Bell has been very active with the Walsh County Saddle Club and 4-H prior to joining Parks and Rec as their new director, Bell and her husband Travis live on a ranch near Fordville with their three kids. As a former nurse at First Care Health Center of Park River, Corrine says that she wanted a change in employ- ment to be able to spend more time with her family. "I wanted to work full time and manage a family," she said. Her experiences up till now, and the fact that she loves her job already are some of her biggest qualifications for this job she said. As the new director, Bell plans on doing some reorganizing and improving communications with the Board and Parks employees. She will also be helping with the new Sports Complex including writing grants and anything she can with construction. The Board also has several other improvements in place for Park River in the immediate fu- tore. The Park Board is currently working on setting up new swingsets in the Little Park. They are also building a new baseball diamond on the south side of the current Cal Ripken field. The board will still be maintaining the current ball diamonds after the new ones in the sports complex area are up, said Bell. She is excited for all the new projects because not only will they bring in more seasonal jobs, but they will also bring in more people to town for more tourna- ments.
