As people age, their risk of developing age-related medical conditions, such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, memory, vision and hearing loss and urologic issues, also increases. That’s why it is important for seniors to have regular check-ups with a family physician.
Wayne Health’s Family Medicine physicians can help you remain healthy and active as you age. We offer a wide range of wellness screenings and primary care, and can also advise you on nutrition and lifestyle changes to help you adjust to the physical changes that come with aging.
If you are diagnosed with an acute or chronic disease, we will help you manage your condition. Should you need a referral to a specialist, we can connect you with experts in Wayne Health’s 50 medical specialties.
Wayne Health’s board-certified Family Medicine physicians use a team-based, patient-centered medical home model in caring for patients. This approach is especially beneficial for seniors who may have medical conditions that require coordination of care with other specialists.
We offer a full range of care for seniors, including diagnosis and primary treatment for illness and injury, routine wellness screenings, annual check-ups, and other preventive medical services to help you remains as healthy and active as possible as you age
