What to expect
At your first appointment, our experts will thoroughly assess your health by reviewing your medical history, health needs, and potential risks for age-related conditions. Next, we’ll create a personalized “Life Plan” designed to help you manage your physical, mental, and emotional health, often in partnership with your primary care provider. A specialized care team will work together to carry out this plan and may include:
- Nurse practitioners
- Social workers
- Other healthcare professionals
As a caregiver for an older adult patient, your needs matter, too. At our Center for Successful Aging, our team is here to provide you with information and resources, connection to support and encouragement as you help your elderly family members age safely at home.
