Ambulatory Geriatric Care
Do you need help supporting care of your elderly patients with multiple complex medical problems who need extra time or are home bound? Inova Geriatrics and Advanced Illness has two ambulatory service lines to care for patients who are complex and at high risk:
- In the Geriatrics and Advanced Illness Clinic, a multidisciplinary team provides expertise in evaluation and management of complex geriatric and advanced illness. The clinic offers consultative or primary care to patients with memory concerns, functional challenges, depression/anxiety, medication management, driving ability concerns, falls, incontinence, advance care planning and concerns about managing in the home environment. You can choose to stay patients’ primary care provider and obtain consultative services from the geriatrician at this clinic, or if desired, transfer patient’s care to the geriatrician.
- In Medical House Calls program, comprehensive primary care is provided by a physician or mid-level provider in patient homes and assisted living facilities for homebound patients with advanced or complex illness.
Both the Advanced Illness Clinic and House Calls program offer longer appointment times, are covered by most insurances, and include 24/7 provider on-call. Referrals can be made by calling 703-698-2431 or via Fax (571-665-6878). For more information, contact Robin Shultz (Robin.Shultz@Inova.Org).
