Geriatric care

Geriatrics is a sub-specialty of internal medicine and family medicine that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist.

Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes prominent. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of diseases and symptoms in different people. The appearance of symptoms depends on the remaining healthy reserves in the organs.

Wounds care services

When you suffer from a chronic wound, it can upset your daily life and routine - it can also be painful. At Dignity Health Medical Group, you will receive the right treatment to heal your wound. Our dedicated team at our wound care clinic has experience treating a variety of wounds that have resisted other treatments. You may be prescribed one of the following therapies:

  • Debridement (removal of dead or damaged tissue)
  • Specially chosen dressings and wraps
  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
  • Bio-engineered tissue substitutes
  • Platelet growth technologies  
  • Wound Vac (Vacuum Assisted Closure) / Negative Pressure Wound Therapy
  • XeroformTM gauze dressings


Wounds are considered non-healing if they do not show improvement after 30 days. In addition to not healing, some of the signs and symptoms include:

  • Numbness on or around the wound
  • Pain that is severe or increases over time
  • Changes in color
  • A foul odor emanating from the wound
  • Noticeable swelling around the wound
  • Fever or other signs of infection, such as redness or discharge
