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.
