Senior Care Q & A

What is senior care?

Senior care is a branch of primary care that specializes in diagnosing and treating conditions that affect older adults. As you age, you experience a variety of changes that may result in physical, cognitive, mental, or social challenges. Senior care can help you stay active, connected, and healthy.

Like the team at Nguyen Medical Group, senior care professionals have years of specialized training working with older men and women. This knowledge and expertise ensures you receive the best possible care.

What are some common problems that senior care treats?

The senior care experts at Nguyen Medical Group regularly diagnose and treat various age-related health problems, including:

  • Dementia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Incontinence
  • Hearing and vision loss
  • Cancer
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Heart failure
  • Diabetes

The team also provides treatment for balance issues, including frailty and vertigo. Prompt care for these challenges can lower your risk of falling and allow you to maintain your mobility.

What happens at a senior care appointment?

At Nguyen Medical Group, a senior care appointment begins with a comprehensive physical and neurological exam, a review of your medical history, and a discussion of your lifestyle and goals for treatment.

If these measures don’t provide enough information, your provider might order additional diagnostic tests, including blood panels, urinalysis, or diagnostic imaging to pinpoint the source of your discomfort and to assist in developing a custom treatment plan.

To get the most out of your appointment, make sure to bring a list of questions or concerns. It’s also important that you’re open and honest. Let your provider know about any chronic conditions you have, as well as any vitamins, nutritional supplements, or prescription medications you take regularly.

How often should I participate in senior care?

The frequency at which you should participate in senior care appointments depends on your overall health and medical history. Usually, the team at Nguyen Medical Group recommends scheduling a senior care exam at least once every year.

If you have a chronic health problem like high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease, your provider may recommend more frequent check-ups. Make sure to follow your provider’s recommendations. Regular check-ups help monitor your progress and help you live a long, healthy, and active life.
