Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment

One of the cornerstones of our geriatrics services is the comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA). This thorough evaluation covers multiple aspects of an older adult's health, including medical, psychological, and functional capabilities. The CGA helps identify health issues early, enabling us to create a personalized care plan that addresses all aspects of the patient's well-being.

During a CGA, our multidisciplinary team evaluates:

  • Medical History and Physical Examination: We review the patient's medical history, medications, and conduct a detailed physical examination to identify any current or potential health problems.
  • Mental Health Assessment: We assess cognitive function and screen for conditions such as depression, anxiety, and dementia.
  • Functional Status: We evaluate the patient’s ability to perform daily activities and their level of independence.
  • Social and Environmental Factors: We consider the patient's living situation, social support network, and community resources.

By understanding the full spectrum of the patient's health, we can develop a tailored care plan that promotes optimal health and independence.

Chronic Disease Management

Many older adults live with chronic conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, and heart disease. Managing these conditions effectively is crucial for maintaining health and preventing complications. Our geriatrics team specializes in the management of chronic diseases, employing a patient-centered approach that involves:

  • Personalized Care Plans: We create individualized care plans that take into account the patient’s overall health, preferences, and lifestyle.
  • Medication Management: We ensure that medications are optimized to minimize side effects and interactions while maximizing therapeutic benefits.
  • Regular Monitoring and Follow-Up: We schedule regular check-ups to monitor the patient’s condition and adjust the treatment plan as needed.
  • Patient Education and Support: We provide education on disease management, healthy lifestyle choices, and self-care practices to empower patients to take an active role in their health.

Our goal is to help our patients manage their chronic conditions effectively, reduce symptoms, and enhance their quality of life.

Fall Prevention and Mobility Enhancement

Falls are a significant concern for older adults, often leading to serious injuries and a decline in independence. At Medical Solution Center, we place a strong emphasis on fall prevention and mobility enhancement. Our approach includes:

  • Fall Risk Assessment: We conduct thorough assessments to identify factors that increase the risk of falls, such as medication side effects, balance issues, and home hazards.
  • Physical Therapy and Exercise Programs: Our physical therapists design individualized exercise programs to improve strength, balance, and coordination.
  • Home Safety Evaluations: We offer home safety evaluations and recommendations to modify the living environment, reducing fall risks.
  • Assistive Devices: We provide guidance on the use of assistive devices such as canes, walkers, and grab bars to enhance mobility and safety.

By proactively addressing the risk of falls, we help our patients maintain their independence and avoid injury.

  • Personalized Care Plans: We develop comprehensive care plans that address cognitive function, behavioral changes, and overall health.
  • Support for Caregivers: We provide resources and support for caregivers, including education, counseling, and respite care services.
