Geriatric Medicine at the UVM Medical Center
Geriatricians at the UVM Medical Center specialize in helping you maintain wellness and independence as you age.
Who Should See a Geriatrician?
Everyone ages differently, and you don’t have to feel “old” to benefit from the care of a geriatrician. Generally, geriatric patients are at least age 65, but younger people may seek geriatric care if they’re experiencing age-related issues like memory loss. Our providers can help treat and coordinate care for overlapping and interacting medical issues that grow increasingly more complex with age, such as:
- Gait and walking issues
- Late-life depression
- Medication management
- Memory issues and dementia
- Osteoporosis and bone health
- Transitions of care planning
Our Approach to Geriatric Medicine
At the UVM Medical Center, we approach geriatric care with a holistic view of the people we serve. Our geriatricians have the unique perspective of both a primary care physician and a specialist in aging. They are experts in a wide range of age-related medical issues, and specialize in providing complex, comprehensive and personalized care.
Geriatric providers also focus on helping our patients to achieve their hopes and goals to continue to live active, independent lives. We get to know you as an individual, and recognize the important role your family members, friends, caregivers and community play in your care.
Research and Education
As faculty members in the UVM Larner College of Medicine’s Division of Geriatric Medicine, our geriatricians teach medical students, residents, undergraduates, graduate students and providers across the region about issues affecting older adults. They also conduct research in topics affecting older adults, in partnership with and through the support of the UVM Center on Aging.
