As we age, our health care needs change and certain illnesses and disabilities are more common in older adults.
Some older adults develop a number of health issues including frailty, incontinence, frequent falls, problems with memory, dementia and medication-related side effects.
Finding the right health care team to address these issues can be hard for seniors and their families, but Des Peres Hospital can help.
At Des Peres Hospital, we provide a wide range of services designed for older adults, including:
- Senior Care Clinic that offers everything you need from general checkups to outpatient services with care provided by a team that specializes in the care of older adults
- Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) Unit that is designed to meet the care considerations of older patients and to reduce their risk of developing complications. Our goal is to provide a caring, comfortable environment where patients can reach their highest functioning ability – while maintaining their personal dignity and independence.
