As your loved ones grow older, they may require more care and specialized assistance in the form of geriatric care. This focuses on preventing and treating the disabilities and diseases that impact older adults.
Senior citizens are often in need of an active aging program in order to remain independent. It’s very common for family members to find it challenging to address a loved one’s needs resulting from changing health and behavioral patterns.
At San Fernando Internal Medicine, Inc., our objective is to provide comprehensive care to bring a positive impact in people’s lives during their golden years. Our geriatric care services are beyond prescriptions as we focus on educating and managing complex psychosocial problems.
We provide treatment for challenging medical conditions, like:
Congestive Heart Failure
and other cardiac conditions
