Older adults who require hospitalization often have multiple chronic health conditions. Maine Medical Center geriatric inpatient programs are specifically designed to meet these complex needs in a hospital setting.
The Maine Medical Center Geriatrics Center provides coordinated clinical services as well as information and tools to help older adults optimize their health and improve day-to-day functioning.
Mary Carol's Story
Mary Carol was in a nursing home for two years for rehabilitation after a medical emergency left her unable to live at home. She didn't think she would ever get to go home...
We all need supportive relationships and this is especially true as we age. Local geriatric care facilities, community programs and support groups provide important resources that help older adults age with dignity and maintain community connections.
Maine Medical Center partners with Southern Maine Agency on Aging, the Alzheimer’s Association and Partnership for Healthy Aging to offer educational programs and support groups designed to help older adults and their families cope with issues related to aging.
Maine Medical Center geriatric specialists also provide care onsite in local nursing homes and assisted living facilities. This care coordination and clinical oversight helps older adults transition from one health care setting to another - such as an acute hospitalization to a skilled nursing facility. In addition to nursing home care and assisted living care, our geriatricians also see patients at New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland.
