GERIATRIC ASSESSMENT CENTER

THE STAMFORD HEALTH GERIATRIC
ASSESSMENT CENTER

At The Greens at Cannondale


Specialized Care for Aging Adults

Healthcare for senior citizens can be complex. The Geriatric Assessment Center at The Greens specializes in evaluating and managing all types of medical concerns specific to older adults. If medical, psychological, or cognitive issues are affecting the quality of life for your elder loved one, we can help.

Our geriatrician Dr. Alison Leigh McElhone has undergone specialized training, beyond that of a family practice physician, to evaluate and manage conditions that may affect older adults. These include but are not limited to issues such as dementia, depression, falls, chronic pain, adverse drug outcomes, urinary incontinence, and constipation.

Using a patient-centered approach, Dr. McElhone and other providers at the Geriatric Assessment Center can recommend treatments and services to help keep senior citizens as healthy, safe, and functionally-independent for as long as possible.
