Improving Health and Well-Being

The Department of Geriatrics helps patients and families who are facing difficult issues that raise questions of health and safety.

Geriatric Tips

We work one-on-one with patients and family members to understand and assess all of the factors involved. Then, together, we develop comprehensive approaches to manage:

  • Caregiver strain
  • Confusion
  • Delirium
  • Dementia
  • Falls and fractures
  • Frailty

Together we will work to manage problems and conditions to reduce symptoms and improve wellness. By leveraging strengths and identifying resources, the intent is to maximize independence to allow individuals to achieve success.

The goal is to help older adults do what they enjoy and live where they feel most comfortable. Daily life should be satisfying, rewarding, and safe.
