The Rush Approach to Geriatrics Services

As your body ages, it changes. Our geriatricians specialize in helping seniors navigate these changes by providing personalized primary care for adults over the age of 65.

Geriatricians are your partners in helping you manage the complex and often interrelated health conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease that can come with aging.

Rush Excellence in Geriatrics Services

  • Personalized evaluations: Your geriatrician may conduct a geriatric assessment, a thorough evaluation of your physical and mental health and abilities. This assessment includes evaluation of your nutrition, hearing, vision, and any issues with incontinence, balance or memory. For example, if we learn you have a diet that's high in salt, we might encourage you to cut back on the fatty meats and switch to fish. Or if we find out you need a caregiver at home, we'll help connect you with one.
  • We do annual cognitive assessments: Whether it's your vision or memory, you might not recognize age-related changes. That's why each year, we'll do a cognitive assessment to note any changes. Annual cognitive assessments are important because it gives us the chance to make an early diagnosis, helps you plan for future treatment and decreases any anxiety you might have about aging.
  • We're your team: Geriatricians collaborate with other providers at Rush as needed to treat conditions associated with aging, such as Alzheimer's disease or functional decline. They also work closely with palliative care providers who offer an extra layer of support and focus on improving your quality of life.
  • Rush @ Home: If you're unable to come to our office, we can come to your home through our Rush @ Home program. Through the program, a geriatrician and a primary care provider can come to your house to give you a medical assessment and do any lab work, as needed. That way, you can stay active and engaged in your care, no matter where you live.
