Seniors Face Unique Challenges

Everyone has varying degrees of health, especially by age 65, and geriatrics providers are trained to offer comprehensive care for the specific challenges seniors face at this stage of life.

Seniors are more likely to deal with memory loss, incontinence and injuries from falls, among other conditions. The role of a geriatrics provider is to not only treat conditions as they arise, but also to evaluate aging adults’ ability to live independently.

Geriatric providers commonly diagnose and treat conditions such as:

  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis

Getting older may bring more challenges when it comes to maintaining good health, but with Jordan Landing Family Medicine on your side, you can face these challenges with confidence.
