Job Description for Gerontologist

Gerontology is the study of physical, mental and social health needs of aging individuals. Gerontologists are typically scientists who perform scientific study in this area, although some licensed medical doctors also work as gerontologists and may provide patient care in hospitals, other clinical settings and assisted living facilities. Gerontologists may conduct studies to better understand various aging processes; these can include, for example, studies on motor skills, reflexes, and the cognitive and emotional effects of aging on seniors. These scientists collect data through standard research methodologies and write their findings in reports that can be used by care professionals and fellow researchers. Some gerontologists are licensed doctors or psychologists, and they assist in diagnosing and treating individual patients; these medical professionals also help devise therapies for elderly patients to help maintain physical and mental health.
