Staten Island, New York 10309
Our medical team doesn't stop caring about geriatric patients after they leave Staten Island University Hospital. That's why our Home Visit Services program gives primary care continuity services for homebound patients. Our program coordinator screens potential patients and caregivers with a phone interview. Next, medical appointments are made with eligible patients. Our in-home primary care physician services include the following:
- Assessments of patient's medical needs
- Follow-up visits
- EKG & routine blood tests
- Peripheral bone density measurements to assess for osteoporosis
- Arrangements for skilled nursing, rehabilitation, and custodial care services
- Social service assessments and care plans
- Caregiver support
Treatment for medical conditions
Eligible patients may have a wide variety of medical problems or chronic illnesses causing disability. We serve patients dealing with senile dementia, Alzheimer's, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, depression, and complications from diabetes. Hypertension, heart attacks, and strokes are common causes of disability among our qualifying patients, while others may be disabled as a result of fractures or other orthopedic problems.
