At Albemarle Square Family Healthcare, we are dedicated to providing geriatric medicine services for our elderly patients. For our patients needing additional support, whether it be home health supervision and visits, nursing home care, or palliative and end-of-life care, we are here.
Home Health Supervision and Visits
When is a move to home health care the right move? This decision looks different for everyone, but some common indications can include a new diagnosis, being at risk for falls, a lengthy or complicated regimen of medications, or a lack of caregiver visits. Or, perhaps, it is too difficult or inaccessible to leave the house for a much-needed doctor’s appointment. No need to worry—we will come to you. We work to serve our patients well and meet them where they are, even if that means meeting them at their homes. We are here for you, in all stages of life and health.
Nursing Home Care
We make routine visits local nursing home facilities to care for you or your loved one’s geriatric medicine needs. We also stay closely in contact with the staff at the care facilities so that we can be on top of any condition changes. If you or your loved one is making the transition from home to a care facility, we can help with that as well to support you and your family.
Palliative and End-of-Life Care
As part of our commitment to serving our patients through all stages of life, we provide palliative care to help manage pain and other distressing symptoms experienced with a terminal illness, as well as end-of-life care to walk with our patients faithfully through their last days. Our primary focus with palliative and end-of-life care is comfort and dignity, and we strongly encourage these patients and the people close to them to be involved with every decision.
