Highland Primary Care

At Highland Primary Care, we understand the unique healthcare needs of older adults and are dedicated to providing compassionate and comprehensive elderly care services. Our goal is to help older adults maintain their health, independence, and quality of life as they age.

Importance of Elderly Care

As individuals age, they may face a variety of physical, emotional, and social challenges that require specialized care and support. Elderly care focuses on addressing the specific needs of older adults and promoting their overall well-being, including:

  • Maintaining Health and Independence: Our elderly care services aim to help older adults maintain their health, functional abilities, and independence for as long as possible, enabling them to continue living fulfilling and active lives.
  • Managing Chronic Conditions: Many older adults have one or more chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, or osteoporosis. Our healthcare providers offer comprehensive management of chronic conditions to optimize health outcomes and prevent complications.
  • Addressing Polypharmacy: Polypharmacy, the use of multiple medications, is common among older adults and can increase the risk of adverse drug reactions, drug interactions, and medication non-adherence. We provide medication management services to ensure safe and appropriate use of medications and reduce the risk of medication-related problems.

Our Approach to Elderly Care

At Highland Primary Care, we take a holistic and patient-centered approach to elderly care, focusing on:

  • Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment: We conduct comprehensive geriatric assessments to evaluate the physical, cognitive, functional, and psychosocial aspects of health and develop personalized care plans based on individual needs and goals.
  • Multidisciplinary Care Team: Our experienced healthcare providers work closely with a multidisciplinary care team, including geriatricians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, and other specialists, to provide coordinated and integrated care.
  • Functional Assessment and Rehabilitation: We assess functional abilities and mobility impairments and provide rehabilitative services, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, and mobility aids, to help older adults maintain or regain independence in daily activities.
  • Fall Prevention: Falls are a leading cause of injury and disability among older adults. We offer fall risk assessments, home safety evaluations, and fall prevention strategies to reduce the risk of falls and prevent fall-related injuries.
  • Memory Care: For older adults with cognitive impairment or dementia, we provide specialized memory care services, including cognitive screening, dementia evaluation, caregiver support, and referrals to memory care specialists.
  • Advance Care Planning: We facilitate advance care planning discussions to help older adults make informed decisions about their healthcare preferences, goals of care, and end-of-life wishes, ensuring that their wishes are respected and honored.
