Geriatrics

Nebraska Medicine provides comprehensive care for older adults that focuses on function and independence. We provide a full continuum of care from outpatient care to rehabilitation, nursing home and home care. We have psychiatrists whom specialize in geriatrics to evaluate and treat cognitive disorders as well as specialists who focus on the treatment of diseases like dementia, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

We also work closely with the Home Instead Center for Successful Aging, which is focused on helping senior citizens live better and healthier lives. This free standing center offers care across the continuum for mind, body and spirit. It is the only program tied to an academic medical center in the region.

The Geriatric Medicine clinic is located on the north side of the Home Instead Center for Successful Aging at 38th Avenue and Leavenworth Street.  Providers focus on the whole person with geriatric psychiatry, nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy and exercise science all in one place.

The center also offers a state-of-the-art gym with ergonomic fitness equipment that caters to the unique needs of older people. For a tour call 402.552.4210.
