Why choose a CCG geriatrician?

CCG Geriatricians have expertise in dealing with the medical complexities of older patients who have many chronic conditions.
CCG Geriatric Medicine physicians are trained to consider the needs of the whole person and focus on function and quality of life. We routinely make home visits to see how a patient lives and what modifications could improve safety, nutrition, function, and mobility. We recognize the importance of allowing family members and other caregivers to attend appointments and can coordinate care with specialists.

We are also well aware of harmful effects that medications can have on older people.
About one in 10 hospital admissions in older adults is due to an adverse drug reaction, but up to half of these events are preventable. 
Unfortunately, doctors who are not experienced in caring for older patients may dismiss signs of adverse drug reactions as dementia or depression.

We Focus on Prevention So you can live life to the fullest

Our goal is to improve your quality of life and ability to live independently. We work in a holistic way using a variety of means and  network with interdisciplinary teams in our community-based service providers to give the best care to our patients.

We are with you every step of the way. No matter where you are, we take care of your health.
