Treating the Whole Person: Comprehensive Care of Older Adults 

The Einstein-Montefiore geriatrics team assesses, treats, and coordinates care for all different types of conditions affecting older adults. These include:

  1. Common medical illnesses such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart conditions, arthritis, emphysema, and diabetes.
  2. Geriatric syndromes such as falls, balance problems, osteoporosis, urinary incontinence, and sleep disturbances.
  3. Memory loss, depression, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and related issues that affect patients and their families.
  4. Changes in function that can impact well-being and independence, such as ability to walk and manage their own care
  5. Evaluation of potential elder abuse and neglect

The Treatment Process 

We begin with a complete patient evaluation, including physical health and ambulation, examination of memory, medication usage, and nutrition.

The assessment and recommended plan is then discussed with the patient and caregivers.
