Comprehensive and compassionate care for older adults in Maryland

Continuing a tradition of caring for the community in all stages of life

Since their founding, MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital and MedStar Montgomery Medical Center have been dedicated to caring for its community, particularly its senior population. In 2016, MedStar Good Samaritan opened the Center for Successful Aging, an outpatient practice to care for older adults with complex medical and social concerns. Using the Baltimore site as a model of care, MedStar Montgomery recently opened their outpatient site. Both Center for Successful Aging locations provide the latest in geriatric care and resources for patients and their loved ones through:

  • Comprehensive cognitive, functional, and medical assessments
  • Diagnosis and treatment of complex medical conditions
  • Medication management
  • Connection to social and medical resources to help maintain your comfort at home
  • Support for emotional and social health needs, as well as practical assistance
  • Navigation and guidance assistance within the largest health system in the region
  • Caregiver support

Keeping older adults safe amidst COVID-19

Our patients’ safety has always been our top priority, and throughout the public health emergency, we’ve remained committed to protecting you and your loved ones. When you need in-person care, we keep your visit as short as possible and utilize a separate entrance from the emergency department to avoid any risk of exposure.

We’ve also added extra precautions in our office to keep you safe, including:

  • Requiring face masks for everyone
  • Frequently disinfecting and cleaning public spaces and rooms
  • Staggering appointments to minimize traffic in the office
  • Screening everyone for symptoms upon arrival
  • Reconfiguring wait rooms to encourage physical distancing
  • Establishing sanitizing stations throughout the facility
