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