Geriatric Care

Geriatric Care

As you enter your senior years your health becomes more complicated and delicate. You may develop new diseases, or pre-existing conditions may worsen. Frailty, incontinence, frequent falls, memory problems, diabetes, and cancer are just a few things you may struggle with.

Dr. Qayyum’s main goal is to create a comprehensive care plan to improve your quality of life and preserve your independence. She works with an extended network of health care providers who can provide additional assistance with ongoing treatment, daily activities, and diet.

What Can You Expect At Your First Appointment?
