Arthritis: Sufferers know that arthritis can have a huge effect on their quality of life. There’s pain, stiffness, and loss of function in the affected joints, and if it isn’t treated immediately, the effects will only get worse. Geriatric care can provide the meaningful support and attention needed to ensure your symptoms are addressed and your quality of life improves.
Bone Diseases (Osteoporosis): Bone diseases, like osteoporosis, can mean that a simple fall can land you in the hospital with serious health issues. Regular geriatric care can help to catch bone diseases early so you can stay healthier for longer. The sooner you can catch osteoporosis, the quicker you can begin treating the condition.
Diabetes: Diabetes not only requires major changes to your diet but constant attention to your blood sugar levels as one bad swing can easily land you in the hospital. From prevention to treatment plans, geriatric care can help to protect your quality of life so you can keep enjoying your health.
Depression: Depression is an insidious cloud that can choke out the joy in your life. If your loved one is listless and uninterested in the daily activities of their life, this may be a sign of a mental health issue that needs attention. Speak with our geriatric physician to learn about depression and how we can help you feel your amazing self once again.
Dementia: Dementia is a truly challenging experience for the sufferer and their family. Losing cognitive function requires professional medical support to adequately manage the condition. Family Medicine and Geriatric Center can help.
Falls: While a fall may not seem like a major issue when we’re still youthful, it can be a serious risk for older adults. As our older family members lose bone density as they age, a fall can lead to serious damage. From treatment for breaks caused by falls to mobility devices, learn how geriatric care can help during the healing process.
Functional Impairment: Functional impairment means a loved one may be struggling with basic self-care activities, like cleaning or grooming. Our geriatric care doctor can help find solutions to keep you independent for longer.
Heart Failure: Heart failure and related conditions are a serious problem that affects a high percentage of older Americans. From serious health failures to physical discomfort, learn how our geriatric care clinic and providers can help you handle your condition.
High Blood Pressure: High blood pressure doesn’t always have visible symptoms but can still cause major damage to your health nonetheless. Our geriatric care doctor can recommend a healthier diet and medication to reduce the risk of serious problems that can arise with high blood pressure.
High Cholesterol: High cholesterol is easy to miss but the effects are serious. The condition can harden your arteries, which can snowball into a bigger cardiovascular health crisis. Make sure you get your checkups and follow your doctor’s orders to minimize the effects caused by high cholesterol.
Insomnia: A few sleepless nights are bad, but insomnia can leave you exhausted for so much longer. Poor sleep is linked to many serious health problems for both our bodies and our minds. Make sure you keep track of sleepless nights and ask your doctor what you can do to get the rest you need.
Pulmonary Diseases (COPD, Asthma): Pulmonary disease can leave you feeling out of breath, gasping for air. This can make basic activities with your loved ones harder to enjoy. Our geriatric care provider can help you breathe easier.
