Senior Care Q&A

What is senior care?

Senior care, sometimes called geriatric care, is an area of medical practice focused on addressing the needs of older people. It centers on providing comprehensive screenings to catch signs of disease in the earliest possible stages, while also educating you on how to take an active role in enhancing your overall health and wellness. 

Advancements in medical technology and health services mean that aging does not have to mean loss of independence or quality of life. By working with a skilled physician, you can remain strong, healthy, and vital as you move through retirement and beyond. 

What kinds of services are available through senior care?

Senior care is highly customized, as no two people share the exact same set of needs. For those who have been working with Dr. Los for years, she simply transitions into senior care as you age and as your needs begin to change. 

If you’re new to working with Dr. Los, she performs a thorough initial exam to learn more about your overall health and any issues you are concerned about. Some of the areas of focus in senior care include:

  • Hearing loss
  • Vision loss
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Strength and flexibility
  • Heart health
  • Medication management
  • Cognitive changes
  • Sleep disruption
  • Bladder control
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Balance issues

These are just a few issues that often come up during senior care. Your experience will be personalized to suit your specific needs and concerns. 

What are the benefits of senior care?

Many people wait to see a doctor until an acute illness or injury arises. That approach fails to take advantage of the benefits of preventive health, which is especially important as you age. 

The aging process brings change, no matter how healthy you are. Staying on top of those changes and giving your body the support it needs can make it far easier to enjoy your later years.

Your risk of certain diseases rises over time. Dr. Los can provide the screenings needed to check for disease, which allows you to begin treatment as soon as possible. Even if you remain healthy and active later in life, working with Dr. Los can help you thrive as you enjoy more time with your family and less time focused on work obligations.
