Partnering with senior patients and their families to ensure quality care
Care for Seniors
Reliant Medical Group knows how important it is to provide all aspects of care available as we age. Our caregivers have plenty of experience caring for people aged 65 and older. Our providers also have the advantage of working closely with our more than 100 specialists. They can give personalized care to patients with both short and long term conditions. We even have a group medical visit program for those with diabetes or osteoarthritis. Whether it’s arthritis, circulatory issues, respiratory disease, dementia, or other health concerns, our team is ready to give you care. We pride ourselves in effective, high-quality care with a supportive, patient-centered approach.
We have a well-established practice just for caring for patients in nursing homes, assisted-living residences, and rehab facilities. We can also care for patients in community settings. Our physicians serve as medical directors at many local long-term care facilities.
We know that caring families play are important to help make sure that our geriatric patients have good health care results. That’s why we place a special emphasis on regular and clear communication with patient families. We work as a team, with patients and families, to make sure that seniors get the best possible care.
The quality of the health and social services available to older adults and their caregivers can affect their longterm conditions and needs.

Long-Term Care – Our geriatric team provides a range of health care services to hundreds of residents in local long-term-care facilities.
Skilled Nursing Home Care – We’ve partnered with many area nursing homes to provide care to residents. Many places have their own Reliant Medical Group geriatrician and advanced practitioner who visit several times a week. This team is skilled in geriatric, post-hospital, and rehabilitation services.
Assisted Living – Some members of our geriatric team care for residents of assisted living facilities and rest homes.
Palliative Care – Our team is also trained to provide complete, empathetic palliative and hospice care. This care follows established principles and ethical standards.
Outpatient Comprehensive Falls Prevention – This program includes screenings by primary care office staff. If needed, they will refer to physical therapy for personalized exercise programs and plans to prevent falls. Staff will also review medications, check vision, and refer to case management for home safety evaluations if needed.
Home Run Program – This program offers qualified senior patients health care services inside their own home. They will connect with a team of doctors and advanced practitioners. The program is designed to give care along with a patient’s regular visits to their primary care physician (PCP). Patients can still see their primary care physician and specialists when they need to. To be eligible for the program, patients must have a written order from their primary care physician. The Home Run Program is great for many elderly patients because it provides an extra “set of eyes” for the patient. Many people benefit from the increased care and attention the program provides.
