Health Screenings

Monitor and Protect Your Health as You Age

As we age, keeping track of our health and watching for issues becomes increasingly important. Our bodies become more susceptible to many different health problems, and our ability to fight off and recover from those problems is also reduced as we grow older.

You can trust Family Medicine & Geriatric Center to monitor and evaluate your health to ensure you’re getting the treatment and preventative care that you need. Our compassionate geriatric care managers provide geriatric medicine and monitoring to ensure the best possible health outcomes for our patients.

Fall Assessments

Catch Serious Problems and Prevent Decline After a Fall

When we reach our later years, a fall can be a serious risk to our health. Not only do falls become more likely, but the effects of those falls can be far more severe due to reduced bone density. 

Having your health assessed after a fall is absolutely essential to catch any serious problems and create strategies to prevent decline while you recover. Getting medical care may be the only way to recover.

Caregiver Assessments

To provide the best outcomes for everyone, we offer caregiver assessments to the primary caregiver and family of our geriatric patients. Learn about resources and get the information and understanding you need to provide the best support possible for your elderly loved one.

Specialist Coordination

The best way to solve a problem is to approach it as an organized team, and the same goes for maintaining and protecting your health. We work with the specialists on your care team to make sure all treatments are coordinated, non-interactive, and as convenient for you as possible.

Care Management

The unfortunate fact is, for most of us, the amount of healthcare we need will increase as we age, and managing all of those complex needs can be difficult. That’s why we offer care management services to our patients, to make certain that all necessary check-ups and treatments are completed.

Medication Management

It seems to be that as our years add up, so too does the number of pill bottles in our medicine cabinet. Managing even just a few medications can be a challenge, much less a whole list of them. Our specialists can help you organize and monitor your medication to help ensure the best possible results.
