Our Geriatric Medicine Services

At Rochester Regional Health, we recognize the psychological and physical challenges associated with aging. Our geriatricians work with older patients (ages 55+) to provide the care and guidance needed to navigate age-related changes, and to maintain the highest quality of life and well-being possible. Our interdisciplinary team offers a full range of primary care for seniors, including:

  • Management of complex medical conditions: Many seniors manage multiple medical conditions, such as arthritis, heart disease, diabetes, and neurological conditions. Our team has special training in how multiple conditions interact in an aging body.
  • Medication management: Our geriatricians help manage multiple medications and provide safe dosages. This management reduces the risk of dangerous drug interactions and overmedication. 
  • Memory clinic: People with dementia receive a thorough assessment, diagnosis, and treatment plan from a geriatrician.
  • Mental health screenings: We identify and evaluate mood or personality changes that could indicate depression, anxiety, or a neurological disorder. 
  • Fall assessments: Injury from a fall is a big concern for families and seniors as they can result in fractures, or worse, the loss of independence. We evaluate your risk of falling with a fall assessment. Since certain medical conditions increase the likelihood of a fall, proper assessment and intervention can help us improve these situations and reduce the risk. 
  • Inpatient care coordination: If you need hospitalization, your physician works with your inpatient care team to ensure they're aware of your medical needs. 
  • Transitional care management: We help you transition to the next appropriate care setting after hospitalization. Social workers and nurses coordinate hospice or palliative care, rehabilitation, or home care.
