Geriatric Care Q&A

What is geriatric care?

Geriatric care focuses on the medical needs of adults 65 and over. As you age, there’s a higher risk that you’ll experience an increase in health concerns that need medical monitoring.

St. Mary’s Family Clinic offers a wide range of compassionate geriatric care services to address many of the age-related complications that can develop over time. These issues can affect your physical or mental health, as well as your mobility.

If left untreated, many geriatric conditions can lead to a loss of independence and premature death. St. Mary’s Family Clinic takes a holistic and integrative approach to reduce your risk for serious health complications as you age.

What are the available geriatric care services?

The geriatric services available at St. Mary’s Family Clinic include diagnostic testing and treatment services for age-related conditions like:

  • Dementia
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Balance issues

St. Mary’s Family Clinic assesses your needs and the state of your health to determine how to best manage your overall health and medical concerns. The practice works closely with you to keep existing health conditions well-controlled and to ensure you’re enjoying a high-quality, healthy life.

What happens during a geriatric care visit?

During your geriatric care visit at St. Mary’s Family Clinic, you can expect to undergo a complete health evaluation. The evaluation includes a free blood pressure check to identify hypertension, a condition that doesn’t show symptoms until the disease advances. You will also have a risk assessment, such as for falls, and discuss your home life and any challenges it may present now or in the future.

You also receive a mental health evaluation to check for signs of dementia, a progressive disease that causes mental and cognitive decline.

St. Mary’s Family Clinic provides comprehensive treatment plans for geriatric conditions. Depending on your needs, you may benefit from counseling and medication management services. In addition to medications, you may need to make changes to your diet and lifestyle to improve your health.

If you’re not able to travel due to illness, mobility, or transportation issues, you can meet with your provider virtually for follow-up visits or to discuss your immediate health needs. After-hours care is available for emergencies to avoid the costs of the emergency room.
