Frequently Asked Questions

What is geriatric medicine?

Geriatric medicine is a subspecialty of internal or family medicine which focuses on “geriatric syndromes” – which include dementia, falls/gait instability, incontinence, polypharmacy, delirium.

What types of patient services do we offer at the CHI Center for Healthy Aging?

We offer a consultative clinic visit for memory loss and falls assessment for patients 50 years and older; in addition to our full geriatrics assessment clinic for patients 55 years and older. We also see patients for primary care who are 55 years and older. We have a dedicated social worker who provides counseling to caregivers and assists our geriatrician with patient placement/equipment needs for our geriatric clinic patients.
