Senior Care Q & A

What is senior care?

Senior care involves the medical care of older adults, as seniors often have different medical needs than younger adults. At Dr. Carrington’s practice, seniors receive the high-quality, patient-centered care they deserve, with little to no wait time and same-day appointment options.

Dr. Carrington also offers concierge medicine for seniors, which includes highly attentive care, unlimited appointments, and 24/7 access to medical care, as needed for a flat quarterly or annual fee. Dr. Carrington refers you to a specialist if necessary, and works with them to provide the highest quality care possible.

Which health conditions do seniors face?

Seniors face the risk of numerous chronic diseases and other health complications. Dr. Carrington cares for and treats seniors with a variety of health conditions, including:

  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Heart disease, cancer, and other chronic conditions
  • Diabetes and prediabetes

Dr. Carrington screens you for and manages these and other health conditions to maintain the highest quality of life possible. Your provider is available any time of day, with same-day and next-day appointment options. You are admitted to a hospital if a serious health problem arises.

What should I expect during my appointment?

During a senior care appointment, your provider goes over your medical history, including any medications you’re taking, and completes a thorough physical examination. They record your height and weight and may screen you for osteoporosis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar, and vision problems.

When necessary, lab or imaging tests help your doctor make diagnoses and establish appropriate treatments. Your provider also offers nutrition and healthy lifestyle counseling as part of preventive medicine to help you avoid sickness and reverse early disease symptoms before serious problems arise. They give immunizations, such as shingles and flu vaccines, upon request to keep you as healthy as possible.
