Geriatric Assessment Center

Geriatric Assessment Center NursingSenior health problems can be complex. Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top hospital nationwide for geriatrics, Morristown Medical Center’s David and Joan Powell Center for Healthy Aging uses a team approach to evaluate each older adult’s individual needs and provides information and support to help them plan for their future. In our state-of-the art medical suite, we offer a senior-friendly environment with a patient and caregiver education center.

What is a Geriatric Assessment?

A geriatric assessment is a multidimensional, multidisciplinary approach to the medical, psychosocial and functional abilities and limitations of older adults. It focuses on older adults with complex medical problems, and it emphasizes on their functional status and quality of life.

We offer a team of experts in geriatric care including geriatricians, a nurse practitioner and a social worker. Our interdisciplinary team focuses on the multifaceted concerns of each older adult and their caregiver and develops a comprehensive plan for addressing individual needs, providing:

  • Consultative geriatric assessment for older adults with multiple medical or cognitive (memory) problems
  • Evaluation and treatment of chronic and/or age-related health concerns, including falls, gait & mobility issues, pain and depression
  • Establish goals of care
  • Coordination of care with current physicians and care providers

Geriatric Assessment Center Visits

Your initial assessment will include a visit with the geriatrician or nurse practitioner and the social worker. At least one family member is advised to participate in the initial assessment. During your visit, information will be collected from both you and your family member(s) to aid in better understanding your individual needs.

Insurance

The Geriatric Assessment Center accepts Medicare and most major health plans.
