Geriatric Health Care Services

An AHN geriatric primary physician specializes in caring for patients as they age. Our experts help keep you healthy and doing what you enjoy today, tomorrow, and for years to come.

AHN geriatric primary care physicians and specialists determine your current health and risk factors, provide care for conditions you’re experiencing, and help connect you and your caregivers with resources to support your health goals.

Why choose AHN for geriatric health care services?

Our doctors prioritize learning about your current health, care preferences, and goals. Then you’ll work together to achieve those goals and meet you where you are on your health journey. We review and streamline your medications. We’ll help identify and prevent any potential issues that are a normal part of aging, including issues with thinking and memory.

Inpatient geriatric support services

AHN uses specialized plans to care for elderly patients receiving overnight (or longer) care in our hospitals. Along with treating the condition that brought you to the hospital, we can help you plan your return home and set you up for an effective recovery. Inpatient services include:

Community-based services
