In additon to basic ignorance or lack of information about the elderly, I also think there's a certain prejudice or attitude among some doctors about older people, especially if they have chronic problems, that maybe they don't warrant the same kind of attention that the rest of us more-or-less able-bodied, more "curable" folks allegedly deserve ...
particularly if the patient is partly or fully responsible for the chronic problem. And no doubt frustration plays a part, too. I know my mom's doctor threw his hands up more than once (as did I) over the years. But I cannot let him wholly off the hook.
