Elmbrook Memorial Campus Helps Keep Seniors Healthy and Active
When you lead a busy life, convenience is important. If you need treatment for a medical issue or condition so you can keep up with that busy life, expertise is important. At Elmbrook Memorial Campus, we have a team of medical experts that are experienced and comfortable in dealing with the unique needs of the mature adult.
The first step is finding a physician you trust. As you age, medical concerns may become more frequent and complex, from arthritis and osteoporosis to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Whether you need more frequent visits to your primary care provider or a referral to a specialist, Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group can meet your needs.
Medical services for the mature adult
We also offer the following services to provide you with peace of mind and personal security:
- Geriatric Medicine – assessing problems, developing individualized treatment plans and working with your primary care physician
- Advance Directives - documents that spell out your health care wishes in case you can’t
- Wheaton Alert– a personal emergency response system that provides peace of mind with instant access to help in an emergency
If hospitalization is required
Elmbrook Memorial Campus offers a continuum of care to seniors, including individual therapy, case management and inpatient care. Much of our inpatient care is provided by Hospitalists, physicians who specialized in the care of hospitalized patients. Our Hospitalists, nursing and support staff are very familiar and experienced with the physical, emotional and psychological changes that may occur with older patients in an inpatient setting. Our medical and surgical units, as well as our Inpatient Rehab unit, are all designed with senior health in mind. Patient and family communication is a top priority. Social work services (case management) are provided to ensure that care is continued after discharge.
We are proud proud to participate in the following programs that provide older adults added peace of mind while in the hospital:
NICHE Program – The Elmbrook Memorial Campus participates in the national Nurses Improving Care for Health System Elders (NICHE) program, which offers care models for providing exemplary health care to seniors.
HELP Program – The Hospital Elder Life Program (HELP) is a research-based program designed to improve the hospital experience for older adults, and prevent and recognize delirium. The program consists of a team of geriatric professionals and trained volunteers that work closely with the hospital staff to meet the special needs of the older adult patient. Learn more about HELP.
