What to Expect – Senior Services
Senior services are care options for older people, usually those over 65. Our senior services are designed to foster a comfortable care experience.
Many of our doctors and nurses have received geriatric training to help them better serve seniors. Their experience shapes our approach to senior care, including developing special facilities and other accommodations for seniors. It’s all part of our mission to provide person-centered care and improve the health of people in the communities we serve.
Knowing what to expect from our senior services can help you determine if senior care is right for you or a loved one.
Do I or a loved one need senior services?
It’s important to have regular health checkups at any age, especially for seniors. We can identify potential health concerns through screenings and diagnostics and help you understand your options.
Certain health conditions are more common among seniors, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, dementia and stroke. Seniors may have other conditions that can complicate care, requiring a specialized approach. The best way to determine if you or a loved one need senior services is to have a health checkup.
Why choose us for senior services?
Our clinics have received accreditations related to senior care, including a Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) designation and Patient-Centered Medical Home recognitions.
We empower care coordinators to take the headache out of healthcare and work to improve communication between care providers and patients. We’re always looking for ways to reduce the cost of medical services for our communities, including through Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+).
Doctors, physician assistants and other medical professionals across our clinics focus on senior services. They seek continuing medical education in geriatric care to better understand the unique health needs of seniors. That care team includes geriatricians, who are doctors that receive specialized training to focus on providing senior care.
