Optimize your health and enhance your life.
At Vidant Health, we know older adults want to remain as physically, psychologically and socially active as possible. As we age, adults face unique and increasing health challenges, including heart disease, heart failure, stroke, dementia and osteoporosis. It’s important for you to have a health care team ready to help and to work with you to maintain your quality of life.
Geriatric experts at Vidant Health specialize in preventing and treating the diseases and disabilities that come with aging. We focus on all the aging issues — medical, social and psychological — and work closely with a multidisciplinary team to help you live as independently as possible, and as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.
Why Vidant Geriatrics?
With all of the conditions that affect older adults, care often requires more than one specialist. Experts from all areas of medicine – cardiology, neurology, cancer, orthopedics, behavioral health and more – are available at Vidant to ensure your care team is complete.
Skilled Vidant team members quickly and professionally meet the needs of senior adults who require acute, short-term inpatient assessment and treatment for mental health issues.
Philips Lifeline is an advanced personal response system that provides emergency medical response 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Lifeline gives you the confidence and freedom to continue living your life the way you’re most comfortable living it. At home, on your own.
Lifeline rental is available to the general public without a referral from a doctor. Lifeline will dispatch an ambulance, the police and fire departments as needed. You can designate your own responders (neighbors, family and friends) to be called when you need assistance. The lightweight personal assurance link can be worn at all times, even in the shower. Lifeline is effective up to a 300-ft. radius on a subscribers’ property, which means that you can get help even when you’re outside.
