Geriatric Services

Health Care Services Designed to Meet the Specific Needs of Older Adults

Geriatric medicine is a subspecialty of internal medicine and family medicine, with services designed specifically to meet the physical, psychological and social needs of older adults. Our experts understand and have advanced training in the often complex medical concerns that patients and their caregivers may face as they age.

Our goal is to help our patients live healthy, productive lives by improving their function, independence, well-being, comfort and quality of life. We do this by developing individualized treatment plans and medication regimens that seek to maintain or enhance the unique lifestyle priorities of each patient.

Our multidisciplinary team includes health care professionals from a variety of disciplines, including geriatric medicine, nursing, and social work. The team works together to diagnose and treat complaints common in older adults such as memory loss and cognitive changes, depression and anxiety, insomnia, decreased mobility and falls, hearing loss, urinary incontinence, osteoporosis, arthritis and nerve pain, and nutritional concerns. We also help patients manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, and cancer. Many of our services may be offered at home, in the office, in the hospital or in a skilled nursing unit. We will often refer patients to other services available within the University Hospital health system and within the community.
