Center for Geriatric Medicine

Providence understands the health concerns and conditions that accompany aging. At the Center for Geriatric Medicine, older adults will find access to a full range of services, from senior wellness centers to primary care centers, specifically designed to promote and maintain their health, independence and quality of life.

Center for Geriatric Medicine staff and physicians are trained to work with older adults who need extra care, and are able to fully and compassionately communicate with older patients. The physicians at the Center are knowledgeable about the various health conditions that affect older adults and can differentiate what symptoms are attributed to normal aging or are disease related. 

Many health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and depression, are more common as patients grow older.  These disease processes will be evaluated and optimally managed with special consideration of the physiological changes that go along with aging and other co-morbidities.

Qualified Geriatric Care

On their very first visit, every patient receives a comprehensive medical and social history, complete physical and functional assessment, and depression scale and mini-mental examination.  Our board-certified geriatricians will use this information to adjust and update the patient's medical history and medication list, and order physical and other diagnostic exams based on each person's need.

With the patient's consent, family members are also encouraged to participate fully in the care of their loved one through open discussions with providers and staff.  In addition, the Center provides educational health and wellness literature to patients and their families to encourage a healthy lifestyle.

The Center for Geriatric Medicine is dedicated to the concept of aging well and maximizing independence.  We provide a full range of internal medicine services to patients 60 years of age or older in an outpatient setting, as well as chronic illness diagnosis and management.  Many health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, arthritis, and depression, are more common as patients grow older.  These disease processes will be evaluated and optimally managed with special consideration of the physiological changes that go along with aging and other co-morbidities.  Major emphasis is placed on the quality and dignity of life, as well as on compassionate and honest communication from our geriatric team.
