Geriatrics Q & A
What is geriatrics?
Geriatrics is a form of medical care catered to aging adults. As you age, your body degenerates and becomes less efficient than it once was. You also become more prone to various diseases, conditions, and injuries. You might eventually have one or more chronic conditions that need ongoing management.
With geriatric care, you can enjoy a high quality of life despite your older age and any conditions that come with it. Geriatric care also focuses on improving or helping you maintain your independence, so you don’t have to rely on professionals or family caregivers during your day-to-day life.
Can I benefit from geriatric medicine?
Geriatric care is highly personalized. Dr. Nguyen and his team cater your attention to you as an individual. Because of this, you might not need to consider geriatric care at the same age as family or friends in your age group.
There are no strict guidelines for when to begin geriatric care. However, you might consider booking a consultation for geriatric care at Nguyen Medical Group if:
- You have more than one health condition to manage
- A condition you have causes immobility
- Your treatment regimen is complex or confusing to follow
- Your family and friends need to take care of you
Dr. Nguyen and his team can give you the support you need to keep up your treatments and manage one or more conditions affecting your life. They also monitor you regularly as you undergo geriatric care to make sure you’re getting the most from your care plan.
What does geriatric care involve?
At Nguyen Medical Group, Dr. Nguyen and his team offer several specialized services and benefits for people in geriatric care. These services can help make your treatment more convenient and less complicated for you and your family.
The team at Nguyen Medical Group offers home visits when you need them. Home visits allow you to see your providers in the comfort of your own home without the additional stress and risks of leaving your house.
Nguyen Medical Group also offers telehealth visits. If leaving your home puts your health at risk, you may be able to visit Dr. Nguyen and his team using technology like voice calls or video chat. With specific health care plans available at Nguyen Medical Group, you have 24-hour access to the senior care specialist team.
