Senior Terms Defined

Managing an elder’s health is complicated. Sometimes it can even seem like the health care industry has a language all its own. Because the professionals who provide healthcare need to refer to very specific conditions and circumstances, they’ve developed a specialized vocabulary.

But these health-related terms that make it easier for professionals to communicate, can seem like jargon to seniors and their caregivers, until they master the definitions. In this section you’ll find the definitions of many of the terms used by healthcare providers. We hope it helps you to understand and better communicate with your healthcare providers.
