Geriatrics is our main specialty. With the help of our specialized physicians, it focuses on promoting the healthcare and wellbeing of our elderly patients by treating diseases and providing the appropriate care. Our elderly division provides healthcare for about 300 resident- patients.
Our Geriatrics division is committed to optimizing the health and well-being of seniors with multiple chronic conditions, life-limiting illness, frailty or disability associated with chronic disease, aging or injury. It focuses on providing relief from aging symptoms and stress of a serious illness such as arteriosclerosis, cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, cataracts, osteoporosis, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and Alzheimer’s disease. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.
Our care teams have an advanced knowledge in addressing the illness and issues of vulnerable seniors with more than one chronic disease and with declining mental and physical capabilities that increase with aging. They strive to optimize independence and quality of life to all our residents who require a level of care that is not generally available to them through a regular patient.
Our purpose in the Geriatric division is to prevent or lessen the burden of disability on older, frail, chronically ill patients and their families and to maximize each patient’s functional independence. The course of chronic illness varies thus the health care needs of the chronically ill patient also changes, requiring the services of one, some, or all Geriatrics over time.
