Everyone gets older … specialty primary care for the process of aging

Throughout life’s different stages, doctors are relied on for our health and well-being — from pediatricians to primary care physicians, and everything in between.

Because every phase of life brings its own unique needs, people need to change doctors accordingly. Washington University Geriatric Care offers compassionate primary care for adults age 60 and older.

The geriatric medicine specialists are trained to help individuals:

  • Maintain independence
  • Improve quality-of-life
  • Reduce emergency room visits and hospitalizations
  • Manage new illnesses
  • Review medications

Geriatric specialist Tim Holden, MD, explains, “We take into account your medical, social and personal needs to build your custom care plan. We focus on evaluating and managing age-related conditions that include falls and frailty, memory loss, depression, malnutrition, osteoporosis, functional decline, stroke, diabetes, general health concerns and wellness education related to the aging process.”

Washington University Geriatric Primary Care represents a unique partnership between Washington University and Covenant Place, supported by a generous grant from the Missouri Foundation for Health. The clinic space provides geriatric primary care, specialized geriatric assessment and weight management, and operates as part of a senior service hub within the Mirowitz Center on the Covenant Place campus. This hub offers physical therapy, legal and social service assistance, banking services, recreational classes and a café, providing a single location for seniors to obtain a range of services to help them age successfully at home.

If you or someone you know is looking for a physician who is dedicated to advanced age primary medical care, please call 314-272-4374. Washington University Geriatric care is located in the Mirowitz Center on the Covenant Place campus in West St. Louis County.
