The geriatric medicine team at University of Miami Health System offers compassionate care and a full range of health services for older adults in South Florida. You receive medical expertise and a variety of services you can only find at an academic medical center, close to home.
Your health needs become more complex as you get older, so you need a team that can manage all your health concerns. Our geriatric doctors work with experts in a wide range of medical specialties to address all your health concerns. We help anticipate your health needs and provide solutions to keep you healthy — from preventive screenings to immediate treatment for serious illness, rehabilitation after hospitalization or surgery, and long-term care plans.
We offer a comprehensive geriatric assessment for people 65 years and older to learn about your physical health — and your mental health and social needs as well. That means you receive personalized medical care and get connected to resources, including community senior services, that benefit you most. Our geriatric experts can help you with complex medication issues, managing chronic (ongoing) conditions or other difficulties, and answer questions about long-term care decisions.
Getting older doesn’t mean you have to slow down or live with symptoms that affect your quality of life. We work with you and your family to help you maintain good health, improve your well-being, and stay independent.
