San Antonio Geriatric Services
Comprehensive & Compassionate Elder Care
Providing healthcare for elder adults is often a more complicated practice
than general healthcare. As individuals age, the gradual decline in their
organs, bones, and other physical systems lead to unique health issues
not present in younger adults, adolescents, and children. At Nix Health,
our geriatric specialists are well-equipped to address the specific health
concerns of our elder patients. Our skilled physicians and nurses take
the time to understand each individuals’ health background and provide
the personalized attention they deserve. We strive to provide exceptional
geriatric services in San Antonio and throughout the surrounding areas,
offering customized treatment plans determined by the unique needs of
each patient. If you or a loved one needs geriatric care in Bexar County,
contact Nix Health today.
Why See a Geriatric Specialist?
The geriatric specialists at Nix Health can help determine if a patient
is suffering from a common disease associated with aging, or simply the
normal effects of the aging process.
There are a few common problems associated with aging, including:
- Impaired memory
- Vision/hearing loss
- Social isolation
- Decrease cognitive function
Elderly adults also face more complications with illnesses or injuries
that would be considered relatively minor in a younger individual. For
example, pneumonia can lead to greater confusion and fevers can result
in disorientation that can lead to a fall. Certain diseases may even present
themselves in different ways in older patients than they would in younger
patients. A trained specialist can accurately identify and diagnose an
issue and recommend effective treatment.
