Geriatric Evaluation and Management Clinic

Helping the older adult and family navigate age-related health challenges

Aging brings changes in physical, mental and emotional health. Some of these changes may be minor and easily manageable. Others may be complex, especially combined with chronic conditions or other health issues.  Our geriatric specialists are committed to helping you work through these challenges so you can make these years some of the best of your life.

Who may benefit from a geriatric evaluation

The Methodist Hospital Geriatric Evaluation and Management (GEM) Clinic offers assistance to older adults and their families when quality of life has been affected by changing health conditions.

Individuals who will benefit most from our clinic include those who are experiencing the following situations:

  • Memory loss 
  • Multiple medical conditions 
  • Social/psychological issues 
  • Falls 
  • Incontinence 
  • Wandering 
  • Depression 
  • Weight loss 
  • Decline or lack of independent functioning 

We will work with your physician to review medications, illnesses, impairments, home environment and other influences that contribute to the older adult's well-being. Then we will put together a plan to address some of the difficulties the individual and family may be experiencing.

Referrals or inquiries are welcome from anyone, including patients, family members, friends or health care professionals.
