Geriatric Assessment Clinic
As you grow older, the link between your health and independence becomes more apparent - to you and to your family. You don't want to be a burden, but managing your health and day-to-day life can feel overwhelming at times.
Gundersen's Geriatric Assessment Clinic helps you promote and maintain your wellbeing and autonomy. Led by a board-certified geriatrician Mary Bassing, MD, the Geriatric Assessment Clinic is a collaborative approach for the care of older adults who may be at risk of losing independence.
The Clinic's goal is to enhance quality of life and independence while preparing for a time when more support might be needed.
Dr. Bassing and her team work with you, your family and your primary care provider to coordinate comprehensive care. Each member of the team brings a unique perspective and skill set. This allows for assessment of multiple areas of health and functioning (cognitive, psychological, physical, social and financial). This can include reaching out to service organizations and suggestions for making your home environment safer.
