Geriatric care

Compassionate care for life’s journey 

Just as physicians of the past made house calls, Via Christi Geriatric Care offers compassionate care in the place you call home. Partnering with your senior living community, we come to you to provide in-house medical treatment for every stage of your life. With specialized training in geriatric care, we can meet your acute care needs or provide long term help managing a chronic disease. Whether you’re living independently or require a little extra assistance, we can help you get the most out of your health.

Our team works closely with your senior living community staff to maintain your current level of ability. If a health concern arises, we will work to prevent it from rising to the level of requiring hospital admission.

In the event you need hospital care, we will help transition your care into a nursing facility to ensure your ongoing recovery needs are met. „ In addition to your physical health, our nurse practitioners also consider your psychiatric, memory care and other mental wellness needs. Our staff can also support you and your family if the transition to a higher level of care is required. We can also provide palliative care for serious illnesses, or begin special care needed in anticipation of end of life. 

Specialized care team

Each member of our specialized care team understands the physical and emotional concerns that can develop later in life. We will do our best to enhance every aspect of your life, with special focus on your health and your dignity. We also take steps to respect the unique culture of the senior living community you have chosen. 

You’ve found a place you love. Via Christi Geriatric Care can help you get the most out your daily life. Call us to schedule a visit today. 

Care wherever you are 

We will provide all levels of care on long-term care campuses:
