Geriatrics Q & A

What is geriatrics?

Geriatrics is a branch of health care dedicated to addressing the unique and transitioning needs of the elderly population. The goals of geriatric care are to:

  • Manage existing health conditions
  • Enhance the quality of life
  • Increase independence

Another important aspect of geriatrics is caring for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of a patient through a highly specific focus on the needs of each individual with customized action plans.

What are the available geriatric services?

  • Diabetes
  • Dizziness
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

The practice additionally offers geriatric-focused screenings for: 

  • Balance
  • Depression
  • Dementia

You also have access to telemedicine services, which allow the homebound to receive meaningful care, medication management services, and transitional care management services even when they can’t visit the office.

Who needs medication management services?

Medication management services are ideal for older adults with delicate health issues who juggle multiple medications. 

Through medication management services, Dr. Oyekoya can support you and mitigate much of the confusion and anxiety that you may feel surrounding your medication regimen.

During a medication management service consultation, Dr. Oyekoya evaluates all of your current medications, and outlines for you when you should take each of them, and their proper dosages. 

She also takes the time to identify any issues with your medications, such as instances when your medications may negatively interact with one another.

What is transitional care management?

Transitional care management is a service that bridges the gap of support that you experience when you transition between health care settings. 

Guardian Physicians works with countless skilled nursing facilities, post-acute care facilities, assisted living facilities, independent living communities, and retirement communities throughout the Atlanta area to provide consistent clinical support.

Transitional care management provides patients with numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved communication
  • Improved patient education
  • Improved follow-up
  • Medication reconciliation

With the support of transitional care management, you also frequently experience shorter stays in health care facilities, and you less frequently require readmission. 

Dr. Oyekoya also helps you plan your discharge.

No matter your age, you deserve a good quality of life. For meaningful support from a caring provider, contact Guardian Physicians for geriatric care online or over the phone today.
