  • Center for Senior Health

    No two patients age alike, and, at Eskenazi Health, understanding a patient’s health means understanding his or her unique care situation. Eskenazi Health Center for Senior Health helps older adults and their families cope with the medical, social and emotional changes that often come with aging such as functional decline, polypharmacy (the use of multiple medications), memory complaints, difficulty with basic daily activities and depression.

    The Center for Senior Health offers primary care in an outpatient setting for frail seniors 65 years of age and older who have multiple geriatric syndromes such as dementia, depression, falls or functional decline. Those who qualify can establish a geriatrician as their primary care doctor. To contact the center, please call 317.880.6600.

    Geriatrics Consultation is also available for those who want to keep their primary care physician but would like a complete health evaluation and physical examination conducted by an expert  team of geriatricians, nurses and social workers. They will develop a plan of care with the patient’s specific needs in mind. Recommendations are reviewed with the patient and his or her family, and a copy of the plan is then given to the primary care physician. The Center for Senior Health team works alongside the patient’s primary care physician to help manage any other issues that may arise.

  • Aging Brain Care

    The Eskenazi Health Aging Brain Care program builds on the success of programs targeting Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. It focuses on treatments and strategies that help patients and caregivers enjoy an improved quality of life.

    Established in 2008, this center combines research and clinical care, resulting in the rapid translation of research discoveries into clinical practice. Working closely with the patient’s primary care provider, the multidisciplinary care team – consisting of physicians, nurses, psychologists, care coordinator assistants and social workers – develops a personal treatment plan for each patient that includes medications as well as non-drug treatments to improve the quality of life for patients and caregivers.

The team of health care professionals includes an IU School of Medicine geriatrician, pharmacist, nurse, social worker, dietitian and therapist who work together to care for older adults during their hospitalization.
