Geriatrics and Senior Care
America is growing older at an unprecedented rate. The number of people 65 and older is larger than ever before, and those 85 and older constitute the fastest growing segment of the population. When the baby boom generation enters its senior years, between 2010 and 2030, it is projected that one in five Americans will be over 65.
As we grow older, our bodies and health needs change. In fact, half of all adults over the age of 65 in the U.S. suffer from an age-related illness or condition, according to a recent study. Most of these aging adults have experienced a loss of mental acuity, suffered falls, incontinence, dizziness or loss of balance, and vision or hearing problems.
Our mission at PrimeMedical is to provide the best quality preventative treatments and medical care to improve quality of life in later years. We believe as much in preserving health as in treating illness.
The geriatricians at PrimeMedical are primary care physicians with advanced training who understand the aging process and how it affects the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of these and other conditions common to the elderly:
- Osteoporosis and other bone and joint problems
- Alzheimer’s disease and other brain disorders
- Heart Disease and Stroke
For the comfort and convenience of our patients, PrimeMedical offers a host of in-house screenings and tests for:
