"It is a 'center of excellence' for the care of common treatable and potentially reversible medical problems, with the goal of having patients return to the community at their prior level of functioning."
The 'Mobile Acute Care for the Elderly' Program at the 'Martha Stewart Center for Living Geriatrics' helps elderly patients to avoid the side effects of hospitalization such as muscle weakness and walking weakness from being bed bound.
Each elderly patient has access to the services of a geriatrician, nurse coordinator and social worker to help ease the transition for returning home.The hope is that by providing elderly with continued care they will to be able to care for themselves and live independent lives when they return home.
