Comprehensive, relevant and insightful conversations about health and medicine happen here… on MedStar Health Doc Talk.    …real conversations with physician experts from around the largest healthcare system in the Maryland-DC region.
Caring for aging seniors can be challenging for patients, their caregivers, as well as medical providers. These seniors can have multiple complex medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, incontinence, and memory loss. The Center for Successful Aging can help, according to George Hennawi, MD, regional medical director. This outpatient practice with two locations, MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital and MedStar Montgomery Medical Center, has a team of geriatric experts that work with patients and their caregivers using a national model of care called The 4Ms: what Matters, medications, mentation (mental activity or memory), and mobility. They partner with primary care physicians to consult or treat aging seniors to help keep them at home with improved health and safety.
