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.
