Improving Lives through Geriatric Care at North Oaks

Geriatric Care focuses on the healthcare of older adults (65+). It aims to promote health and well-being by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. Our trained geriatric physicians specialize in the promotion and maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and quality of life longevity.

Aging loved ones often require specialized attention. Reaching and maintaining optimal health and wellness for geriatric patients, however, is more than a concern of just medicine. Effective care for geriatrics is a team effort between healthcare professionals and caregivers to manage health conditions and provide a safe and positive environment.

Many health concerns occur simply as a result of the aging process. For a geriatric patient, these problems are complicated by additional declines in physical and/or mental abilities. As a result, sometimes a patient cannot keep up with their care, and adverse health episodes become more frequent.

Many medical conditions and symptoms of elderly loved ones can now be better managed due to advances in diagnostics, imaging, medications and patient learning. This can ease pain and discomfort while bringing stability and confidence back to the caregivers. Wisdom and guidance from a geriatrician can help to navigate the journey safely and with care.

When seeking medical attention for geriatric patients, it is important to find a healthcare professional to help the entire family navigate these challenges.
