Geriatric Medicine

At the Baylor St. Luke’s Senior Care Center, the specialized team evaluates the whole person––not only focusing on the functional status, but also their quality of life. Baylor St. Luke’s Senior Care Center’s multidisciplinary approach to care puts social workers, nutritionists, nurses, mid-level practitioners, and physicians under one roof to fulfill every need of older patients.

Our care team offers longer-than-average appointment times. This allows us to fully address each person’s physical and mental health, as well as evaluate the psychosocial and dietary needs of every patient and educate them on proper medication management. An on-site social worker helps patients and their families identify resources in the community, cope with caregiver burden, and assist with future planning and advance directives. We can also help patients obtain the durable medical equipment they need to remain healthy at home.

Our geriatric services include:

  • Comprehensive geriatrics assessment
  • On-site laboratory and diagnostic imaging
  • Coordination of determination of competency
  • Falls analysis and prevention
  • Functional assessment
  • Advance directives counseling
  • Long-term care information
  • Community resource information
  • Screening for dementia and depression
  • Education on dementia and related issues
  • Referral network to specialists and surgeons that focus on the care of older adults
  • Neuropsychology testing
  • House Call Program
  • Inpatient and outpatient management
  • Patient, family, and caregiver counseling
  • End-of-life symptom control
