Geriatric & Senior Services
Compassionate care for the unique medical needs of older patients
Many seniors are finding that they have time to enjoy life and take better care of their health. However, growing older can also bring health challenges not faced before. Our geriatric specialists can give the right care for you or someone you love to work through these challenges.
Geriatric patients often defy traditional diagnosis and treatments and without proper medical interventions, can decline quickly. The Geriatric Assessement Center located at Methodist Physicians Clinic Indian Hills is designed to provide the environment, resources and patient care for older adults. Our ultimate goal is to allow you or your loved one to return home and to resume an independent life.
