Speak with Us at Parrish Healthcare Today
Geriatrics is a branch of medicine dedicated to the care of elderly patients.
At Parrish Healthcare, we offer various services, programs, and amenities
to ensure that our elderly patients receive the care that they need and
that their loved ones can feel confident about the patient's well-being
and quality of life.
What Is Geriatric Care?
Geriatric care is primary care that puts a particular focus on the health
challenges that patients face with advanced age. Physicians and specialists
in this field of medicine have extensive experience in these health concerns
and are well-versed in the challenges that elderly patients (and their
loved ones) face as they grow older.
Geriatric care can consist of care and treatment for:
- Alzheimer's disease
- Cardiogeriatrics (heart issues)
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Oral health
- Mobility issues
- Injuries from falls
- Unintentional weight loss/malnutrition
- Nursing home abuse/neglect
- Various screenings and prevention measures
We can also help patients and their loved ones manage their prescriptions,
conduct in-home check-ups and care, and provide referrals to local recommended
assisted living facilities when necessary. Call Parrish Healthcare today
