Geriatric care at Adventist Health
As bodies age, the need for healthcare often increases. Adventist Health medical centers are prepared to meet the full spectrum of senior healthcare needs.
Many of our services can be provided in the comfort of your own home. Those recovering from medical center stays can receive regular home visits from the caring professionals on our Adventist Health home care services team. We also focus on prevention, with screenings and lectures on topics such as osteoporosis.
Our geriatric doctors are ready to support you
Geriatric medicine focuses on the medical problems that often come with aging. They receive special training in treating patients who are over age 60. Geriatricians learn how different conditions affect each other and are able to offer a more comprehensive plan of care for senior patients than the standard primary care physician.
You or a loved one might benefit from working with a geriatrician if the patient is:
- Over 60 years old
- Working with several medical professionals at one time
- Diagnosed with co-occurring conditions
- Having a difficult time moving about their own home
- In need of support from caregivers on a daily or near-daily basis
Geriatricians are highly experienced treating patients with mental and physical disabilities. If you or a loved one are in need of more specialized senior care, then the senior services team at Adventist Health is ready to support you. We take a holistic approach to care that focuses on caring for the whole person, not just treating your medical condition.
