Why is Geriatric Care So Important
As we age, our bodies and our health change, and it becomes more important to work with a medical provider who understands preventative care as well as the complexities of various diseases and medications and how they can affect older individuals differently. At Southwest Care Center, we want to know what your health goals are – whether they are to run a 5K or just make sure you can enjoy time with your grandchildren. Southwest Care Center has providers who specialize in the treatment of older adults and are uniquely qualified to tailor care to the goals and needs of each patient.
Southwest Care Center’s geriatric healthcare team doesn’t just treat your medical conditions, they take a whole-person approach to senior wellness. This means that the team will evaluate past illnesses, current health conditions as well as your emotional wellness and safety of your environment to tailor a healthy aging plan that’s customized for you.
Southwest Care Center offers geriatric primary care at our Galisteo Clinic, located in Santa Fe.
