What is a Gerontologist?
A gerontologist studies the social, cultural, psychological, cognitive and biological aspects of aging adults. Geriatrics, by contrast, studies diseases of older adults. Gerontology investigates the psychological effects on aging, especially with relationships — socially and physically. They study the lifestyle change related to being an older adult and they help provide services to our ever-increasing aging population.
