Geriatric Care Q & A

Why should I get geriatric care?

The straightforward definition of geriatric care simply means that your provider specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of the chronic diseases that develop as you get older. But there’s much more to geriatric care. 

The geriatric care provided by Integrated MD Care extends well beyond the classic treatment. The team specializes in the complex physical, emotional, and mental care you need when you’re diagnosed with a long-term or terminal illness and you need help with issues such as advance care planning and palliative care.

At Integrated MD Care, your geriatric care comes from a team of physicians, nurses, social workers, and spiritual counselors who work closely with you and your family. 

They’re devoted to keeping you free from pain and providing the support you need to live a dignified life as you reach the end of your days.

What specialized services will I receive with geriatric care?

You can receive many services as part of your geriatric care, including:

  • Medical management of your illness
  • Pain management
  • Mental health guidance
  • Spiritual guidance
  • End-of-life counseling
  • Grief counseling
  • Palliative care
  • Hospice care
  • Advance care planning
  • Alternatives to hospice

Does geriatric care include end-of-life planning?

The Integrated MD Care team also works with your family and loved ones, including them in your care as desired and facilitating difficult conversations about end-of-life planning. Their expertise helps you find the answers to your deepest questions, such as:

  • Which treatment options honor my values?

  • How do I know when to keep fighting?
  • How do I know when it’s time to stop?
  • What happens if I decide to stop fighting?
  • How do I prepare for the best possible death?
  • How do I live the best possible life leading up to my death?
