The term “senior care” may seem pretty self-explanatory, but it’s more than just healthcare that addresses the medical needs of patients aged 65 and over.
At Palm Medical Centers, where we have been bringing genuine kindness to senior primary care for more than a decade, we treat the whole person, with services like diagnostic services, case management and clinical care, social services, transportation, wellness centers, pharmacy, telemedicine, and access to in-house specialists.
Whether you are a senior seeking a primary care physician or a family caregiver looking for the best comprehensive, long-term care for an elderly loved one, you need the right knowledge and resources to meet that goal.
