Mission The mission of the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy is to further our members ability to provide best practice physical therapy and to advocate for optimal aging.
Overview GERIATRICS, health care concerned with the aging, is a rapidly growing specialty in physical therapy. The Section on Geriatrics supports those therapists, assistants, and students that work with an aging population in roles of advocacy, direct patient care, consultation, supervision, and education. The Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy was formed in 1978 to address the needs of the physical therapy practitioner working with the aging client. The Section represents and serves over 5,000 members with a wide array of services and benefits.
