What is senior care?

Senior care is a specialized area of health care that focuses on the unique medical needs of aging adults, with an emphasis on maintaining their health and well-being as they get older.

Also called geriatric medicine, this comprehensive approach involves preventing, diagnosing, and treating health concerns that commonly develop in older adults, such as chronic health conditions and functional limitations.

By delivering individualized care and support for seniors, Dr. Rahimi can help older patients maintain their health, independence, and quality of life as they age.

Why is senior care essential?

Geriatric medicine provides specialized care that considers the unique needs of seniors and aging adults. With a strong background in senior care, Dr. Rahimi can help older adults live longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives.

She can help older patients:

  • Prevent disease and illness
  • Manage chronic health concerns
  • Maintain healthy cognitive function
  • Live independently
  • Prevent falls

Dr. Rahimi recommends that patients aged 65 and older consider senior care to enjoy long-lasting health.

What health concerns do seniors face?

  • Chronic diseases (hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, osteoporosis, and more)
  • Cognitive decline and memory problems
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Falls and other physical injuries
  • Weight management difficulties
  • Weakened immune function

Preventive health screenings

Fall risk assessments

Fall risk assessments help prevent injuries in aging adults. Dr. Rahimi evaluates your balance, coordination, strength, and other factors that can increase your risk of falling.

Medication management

Many seniors take multiple medications. Dr. Rahimi can track, monitor, and adjust your medications to ensure maximum efficacy with minimum side effects.

Memory and cognitive screenings

Assessing your memory and cognitive function is an essential part of senior care. Dr. Rahimi reviews and updates your medical history before conducting a series of tests, including a depression screening and functional assessment.
