What is geriatric care?

Geriatric care is a branch of health care focused on the unique needs of seniors and aging adults. In the same way that children need pediatric care, aging adults benefit from geriatric care.

The Roseville Family Healthcare team focuses on providing accessible, quality, and catered care to patients of all ages and walks of life. It provides thoughtful geriatric care to its older patients, helping them manage chronic and existing health conditions, increasing their independence, and ensuring they enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

Why do older adults need geriatric care?

As you age, your body changes. Infections, illnesses, and accidents may be more impactful on your health than a younger person’s, and medications may affect you differently. On top of that, you’re far more likely to deal with co-occurring health problems or chronic conditions that require multiple medications.

Some of the most common chronic conditions geriatric care can help treat include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Hearing loss
  • Vision loss
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Dementia

Geriatric care visits are also an opportunity for providers to screen older adults for issues related to balance and coordination, mobility and frailty, incontinence, and mental health challenges like depression and anxiety.

What are medication management services?

When you’re juggling multiple chronic conditions at once, you often end up juggling multiple prescriptions as well. As time goes on, you may find yourself with multiple medications for the same condition, a situation that is inconvenient at best and dangerous at worst.

This is one of the many situations that can lead to stress and confusion for older adults, as well as any caregivers in their life.

Medication management services fix this problem by reviewing these medications and ensuring you’re only taking the medications you need when you need them.

You and your loved ones deserve the best care at every age. Roseville Family Healthcare provides holistic, supportive geriatric care alone or in conjunction with your geriatrician.
