Geriatric / Senior Services
Compassionate care for the unique medical needs of older patients
Many seniors are finding that they have time to enjoy life and take better care of their health. However, growing older can also bring health challenges not faced before. Our geriatric specialists can give the right care for you or someone you love to work through these challenges.
Geriatric patients often defy traditional diagnosis and treatments and without proper medical interventions, can decline quickly. The Acute Care for the Elders (ACE) at Methodist Hospital is designed to provide the environment, resources and patient care to prevent an elderly patient’s functional decline during hospitalization. Our ultimate goal is to allow you or your loved one to return home and to resume an independent life.
