Arrowhead Regional Medical Center’s Geriatric Medicine Clinic, located within the Arrowhead Family Health Center - Westside, provides assessment, treatment, and follow-up care for adults 65 years and older.

The clinic also provides the tools and knowledge for families providing assistance to their elder family members.

The clinic is staffed by a physician who specializes in the care of older adults as well as registered nurses, complex care managers, licensed vocational nurses and clinic assistants.

  • Dementia (due to Alzheimer's disease or related conditions)
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke syndromes
  • Delirium
  • Hypertension
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Weight loss
  • Cancer
  • Anemia
  • Constipation
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Loss of balance

Who would benefit most from Geriatric Care?

  • Someone who has become frail, or their condition causes considerable impairment.
  • Someone whose caregiver is feeling increased anxiety or feelings of being overwhelmed when providing care.
  • Treatment regimens become too complex.
  • A person is being seen by multiple caregivers.

See a Geriatrician if:

  • You are over the age of 65.
  • You are experiencing age-related conditions you feel are abnormal to the aging process.
  • You have questions or need advice on how to stay healthy as you age.
  • You feel aging is not allowing you to have a fulfilling life.
  • You have questions about age-appropriate screenings such as colon and breast cancer screening.

A geriatrics consult may help elderly patients maintain independence and remain in their homes as long as possible.
