Geriatric & Senior Services at the Geriatric Assessment Clinic
Helping the older adult and family navigate age-related health challenges
Whether you’re facing age-related health changes or other cognitive challenges, it’s important to have a trusted support network. The Geriatric Assessment Clinic can help with its individualized approach in diagnosis, treatment and care.
The clinic focuses on adults with known or suspected cognitive changes due to dementia, stroke, injury, neurological disease or other causes. With a thorough evaluation, our staff can help determine if the changes are related to normal aging, disease or illness, the effects of medication, or psychological factors.
The Geriatric Assessment Clinic Team
Our multidisciplinary team of professionals, all specially trained to meet the needs of older adults, is led by fellowship-trained geriatric physicians. It also includes a neuropsychologist, social workers and a pharmacist.
We partner with Methodist Physicians Clinic primary care providers to find solutions for patients facing age-related and cognitive challenges.
