What is Geriatric Care?

Geriatric care (also known as geriatric medicine or geriatrics) is a medical specialty focusing on the health conditions, diseases, and disabilities that can come as a result of aging. As you or a beloved family member grow older, new health challenges often arise which require personal attention and special care. Our compassionate team of geriatric doctors work to help older adults stay healthy and active through our personalized high-quality, comprehensive, and coordinated care.  Our doctors understand the changes faced as a result of aging and work with you to prevent diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Nearly 85 percent of senior adults have at least one chronic health condition, while 60 percent have two or more. We understand managing multiple health conditions and medications can be challenging for many seniors. Our team promises to help you manage your overall health keeping you engaged through shared decision making and ongoing positive relationships. We are dedicated to helping you successfully maneuver the medical conditions and medications which often accompany the aging process.
