Geriatric Care

Geriatric Care

Medical Services for Elderly Patients

Some of our primary care physicians specialize in the treatment and management of conditions that most commonly affect older patients. The average person’s medical needs typically increase once they reach age 65, which is when many people start seeing a geriatrician physician who focuses on geriatric issues. From diet to medications, most everything changes as we get older. Our experts are familiar with how these changes affect the body and can provide education on how to stay healthy as you enter your senior years.

We focus on many aspects of geriatric medicine, including:

  • Treatment and management of chronic medical conditions
  • Fall prevention
  • Primary care services for seniors
  • Cancer care
  • Coordinating care between doctors’ offices and hospitals
  • Assisting with and helping patients prepare for assisted living
  • Medication management
  • Consultations for when a patient needs hospice care

At MarinHealth, our geriatricians provide a personal care experience. No two patients are the same, and we take the time to address the unique needs of every individual who needs our assistance. Different seniors will face different challenges, and whether you need help preventing medical problems or managing existing ones, our compassionate team is here to help.
