Geriatrics Medicine

Specialties GeriatricsWhether you are managing your own health or caring for a loved one, it’s important to have a trusted physician who understands the specific needs we all have as we age.

Our Ohio Medical Group primary care and family medicine physicians have extensive experience in geriatric medicine, which includes:

  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation services
  • Occupational therapy
  • Medication management
  • Wound care
  • Short term skilled nursing care

At some point, we all may need care beyond what our loved ones can provide at home.

Statistics show that the risk of readmission to a hospital is less when patients used skilled nursing facilities recommended by their primary care physician during a hospital stay. There are many options available and many systems to rate them, but the best way to find the right fit is to simply talk with your physician. We choose only high quality facilities in which to see our patients. 

Our physicians at North Ohio Heart and Ohio Medical Group have the expertise to make recommendations about skilled nursing care facilities and other options for care as patients age.

To learn more about your options, contact your Ohio Medical Group physician.
