Your Premier Choice for Geriatric Care: Total Care Medical Centers

At Total Care Medical Centers, our geriatric care team is composed of diverse healthcare specialists, including primary care providers, internal medicine specialists, home care nurses, and nutritionists. Together, we create a comprehensive plan of care to ensure our senior patients experience optimal health and quality of life.

Understanding Geriatric Care

The golden years can come with their set of health challenges. With age, seniors become more susceptible to a variety of chronic conditions and are prone to falls, injuries, and accidents due to physical strength reduction and potential cognitive decline. Recognizing these unique needs, our geriatric care services include:

  • Frequent Check-ups: Regular visits to a primary care provider with a focus on early detection and management of chronic or serious health issues.
  • Specialized Consultations: Regular appointments with a geriatric specialist, particularly crucial when there are signs of cognitive decline.
  • Health Education: Informative discussions about maintaining optimal health as we age.
  • Adaptive Solutions: Recommendations for lifestyle and environmental adjustments to accommodate aging, such as the use of mobility aids or home modifications to minimize fall risks.

At Total Care Medical Centers, we are dedicated to offering all-encompassing geriatric care. Whether you are a senior in need of regular health check-ups, or a family member seeking quality healthcare for your loved ones, we are ready to assist.

Doctors Specializing in Geriatric Care

Geriatric care involves a multi-disciplinary approach. Primary care or family doctors, internal medicine specialists, and orthopedic surgeons can all play roles in treating the elderly. Geriatricians, physicians specifically trained in the care of the elderly, are invaluable in our care model. These specialists spend their medical training focusing on the unique healthcare needs of older adults. Some may also have further sub-specialties, such as psychiatry or palliative care, enhancing their ability to manage the complexities of senior healthcare in various settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, or private practices.

Our Geriatric Medicine Treatments

At all our Total Care Medical Centers locations, we provide comprehensive geriatric medicine treatments. Our geriatric specialists understand that older adults need tailored treatment and support, and they are equipped to help. We manage a wide spectrum of common geriatric medical issues, including:

  1. Cognitive decline: Such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, where early intervention can slow the progression of cognitive decline.
  2. Heart disease: The leading cause of death in adults over 65.
  3. Bone health issues: Such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Early detection and intervention can prevent severe outcomes, especially following a fall.
  4. Type 2 diabetes: Management can include dietary modifications and insulin support.
  5. Infections: Like influenza and pneumonia, which can be severe in seniors due to weakened immunity.
  6. Vision and hearing loss: We provide comprehensive evaluations and treatments, including hearing aids, eyeglasses, or corrective surgeries.
