We are the only senior assessment program in the area. As a result, we help ensure a high quality of life throughout the senior years. We listen to seniors and their families and address issues that are often overlooked by the medical system.
A multidisciplinary team of senior health experts – geriatricians, geriatric psychiatrists, and clinical social workers – completes a comprehensive assessment that considers all the patient’s medical problems, as well as psychological and social issues and his or her preferences, with the goal to improve and maintain not only the health but also the functioning and quality of life for the patient.
Once the assessment is complete, we provide a diagnosis and make recommendations that allow the patient to enjoy good health, improved overall quality of life, a reduced need for hospitalization or long-term care, and the ability to live independently for as long as possible.
We provide educational materials about resources available in the community to assist with additional support. We also discuss living wills, advance medical directives, and power of attorney.
