Geriatric care is a medical specialty that focuses on health management in older adults.

  • Have multiple chronic conditions

A geriatrician provides the support and guidance you need to navigate age-related health concerns and changes.

What services does geriatric care include?

Mobile Doctor Medical Clinic offers several geriatric care services, including:

Legal capacity evaluations

A legal capacity evaluation assesses one’s physical, mental, and cognitive health to determine whether they are capable of making sound decisions regarding their medical care and treatment.

Fall risk assessments

A fall risk assessment is a comprehensive exam that evaluates your likelihood of suffering unexpected injuries, such as tripping and falling. These evaluations ensure you receive the support you need to minimize your fall risk.

Wellness exams

Wellness exams are head-to-toe assessments that Medicare insurance typically covers. They evaluate your overall health and care plan.

Medication management

If you take multiple medications, the team can help track and monitor your progress. They provide detailed instructions on when to take certain medications and what to expect. Medication management ensures your medications are effective and that they cause minimal side effects.

Sick visits

Patients who feel unwell may not have the energy or mobility to make an in-office visit. The team offers house calls to eliminate unnecessary stress when you’re ill.

House calls

The care team proudly provides house calls for patients who need chronic disease management, diagnostic testing and therapy, and other services they can perform at your home.
