What is Geriatric Care?

Geriatric care looks after the health and happiness of older adults, usually those aged 65 and up. As people get older, they might deal with things like chronic conditions, mobility issues, cognitive decline, and social isolation. Geriatric care helps with these special needs, giving personalized, all-around care to help older people stay healthy and enjoy life as they age.


Our Approach to Geriatric Care

At Volusia Medical Center, we focus on giving older adults the care they need with respect and understanding. Our team works together to create personalized care plans for each senior patient. This team includes doctors, nurses, therapists, and other experts who come together to meet all aspects of a senior's health needs. We respect each person's dignity and independence, making sure they get the right care for them.

Services We Offer for Geriatric Care

1. Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments

We do thorough check-ups to see how seniors are doing overall. We look at their health, how well they can do things, how they think, what they eat, and who they have for support. This helps us find any problems and make a plan to help them feel better.

2. Preventive Care

We focus on keeping seniors healthy and active as they get older. This means regular check-ups, immunizations, wellness exams, and teaching about health to stop problems before they start.

3. Chronic Disease Management

A lot of older adults have ongoing health issues that need regular attention. Our team is experts in handling conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart problems, arthritis, weak bones, and memory loss. We work to help seniors live well with these conditions and prevent complications.

4. Medication Management

We help seniors handle their medications safely and correctly. Our team checks their medicines, talks about any changes, and explains how to take them. We also help manage any side effects and make sure the medicines work well together.

5. Fall Prevention

Falls are a big concern for older adults and can cause serious injuries. We check for fall risks, look at how safe their home is, and teach exercises to improve balance. We also share tips on reducing their fall risk to help seniors stay safe and independent.

6. Memory Care

Many seniors worry about memory loss and dementia. We offer tests to check memory, find problems early, and help manage memory issues. We also help caregivers understand how to support seniors with memory problems.

7. Nutritional Counseling

Eating right is important as we get older. Our dietitians give personal advice and tips to help seniors choose healthy foods, manage health problems, and maintain a healthy weight.

8. Social Support Services

Social isolation and loneliness can have negative impacts on seniors' health and well-being. We offer social support services, including referrals to community resources, support groups, and senior centers, to help seniors stay connected, engaged, and socially active.
