Reinventing Geriatric Healthcare
Introducing Welcome Health
At Welcome Health, we deliver the primary care that adults aged 65 or older deserve. Believing that dignity, quality of life, and quality of care go hand in hand, we built Welcome Health on the principles of geriatric medicine. A medical specialty designed to address the needs of older people, geriatric medicine highlights the importance of addressing the physical, mental, and social health of older people.
By specializing in aging, our primary care physicians are able to better focus on preventive care. Our doctors are focused on addressing elements that affect quality of life, especially physical limitations, mobility issues, cognitive changes, isolation, as well as other challenges within the home environment.
We believe that the best healthcare anchors around your priorities. We strive to understand your personal values, life goals, and health objectives. With this relationship foundation, we address your healthcare needs in the context of the most important elements of your life. Each healthcare decision is informed by your values and consequently designed to help you achieve what matters most.
We come to you.
Most importantly, Welcome Health brings your specialty care to seniors wherever they are. Our clinicians make house calls, perform virtual visits, and have office hours at our clinic. We believe that all older people have earned the right to respectful, accessible, and convenient primary care.
Most primary geriatric care is generally rooted in internal medicine. Which is often focused on treating a particular condition or illness, rather than on the overall health and well-being of the patient. This type of care can be problematic, especially for elderly patients.
Additionally, it often fails to take into account the unique needs of older adults, such as mobility and cognitive issues, leaving them feeling like their autonomy has been taken away from them. This can lead to care that is reactive and inconvenient, which can be especially detrimental when it comes to managing chronic conditions.
Finally, owing to the fact that primary care was not originally designed with the needs of elderly patients in mind, these approaches can often result in less than desirable outcomes.
Our philosophy is different.
We created Welcome Health for older adults because we believe that seniors deserve better healthcare. In the current landscape of primary care, most older people receive traditional one-size-fits-all healthcare. This internal, medicine-based primary care approach treats specific diseases regardless of how those diseases, and the treatments of those diseases, affect each person’s quality of life.
Above all Welcome Health is different. Grounded in the art and science of geriatric medicine, Welcome Health delivers holistic, whole-person care instead. Our doctors carefully balance the treatment of disease with quality of life, physical function, and what matters most to each person. At Welcome health we focus on our patients’ convenience, concerns, and personal goals.
