Compassionate care for older adults
You’re only as old as you feel inside. In fact, getting older doesn’t necessarily have to slow you down. Many older adults face chronic health conditions, however, and your need for medical care may increase as you age.
Main Line Health offers complete geriatric services at hospitals and health centers throughout the Philadelphia suburbs to help you maintain your independence and live life to the fullest in your later years.
Our team of geriatric specialists evaluates and helps manage your age-related medical concerns, including:
- Bone loss and osteoporosis
- Fall prevention
- Memory loss and dementia
- Mobility management
- Nutrition and weight loss
- Medication management
- Chronic disease management
We’re here to provide personalized care that adapts with you as you age. Whether that means regular medical exams, in-home assessments or long-term hospital care, we have the resources and experienced care team to help. We are particularly sensitive to the health care needs of LGBTQ older adults and their caregivers.
Every type of care you need as you age
No matter your age, every person needs to see a doctor for an annual check-up. This becomes especially important as you age. Many older adults find that in addition to common medical concerns, they also experience anxiety, confusion, depression and a difficult time adjusting to the aging process.
Our doctors are here for you, offering services to help keep you healthy and happy, including:
- Education on common geriatric problems
- Evaluation of your medical needs
- Professional counseling
- Social services and support
When you have symptoms of a chronic or serious condition, our dedicated team can provide advanced treatment options. We offer inpatient and outpatient care with a special focus on older patient care needs. Our geriatric specialists work together with specialists in other fields to provide comprehensive, collaborative care. They can also see you for consultation and share their recommendation with you and your primary doctor.
