County Geriatric Lists
What Community Geriatric Resources Are Available In Your County?
In the fall of 2014, Center for Healthy Aging staff conducted focus groups with primary care physicians throughout Western North Carolina about their experience providing care to older adults – what they liked, what challenges arose, and what they wanted more training in. See results here.
Several physicians said they wanted to know what community-based services were available to help older adults continue living independently. In response, we have compiled the following county-specific lists of geriatric resources available – helping older adults live independently and addressing common geriatric syndromes such as dementia, depression, and fall risk. Many thanks to consultant Rebecca Chaplin for compiling these lists.
Please share these lists with patients and send updated information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how you use the lists and what you think of them!
