Washington Regional Clinic for Senior Health Road Map

Overview
Our mission is to promote healthy aging by keeping older adults well, active and independent for as long as possible. Because our clinic is devoted exclusively to the service of older adults, our staff and services are uniquely sensitive to their needs and abilities. We are able to distinguish between the normal changes caused by aging and changes caused by disease. Illnesses that linger are an unfortunate accompaniment of old age, but sometimes older people with multiple chronic health problems assume they have to cope with continued symptoms and disability. A comprehensive geriatric assessment can determine what conditions are present and determine if increased or different care could help patients improve. With this approach, the best care can be identified.

Our Team
Our multidisciplinary team includes geriatricians, advanced practice nurses, counselors, social workers, and a geriatric neuropsychologist, neurologist, urologist, geriatric psychiatrist and nursing staff. All members have specialized training in geriatrics. You will be treated with kindness and compassion by a devoted team.

Dr. Randy Shinn, Medical Director of the Senior Health Clinic, was featured on KNWA's "Your Health" about vitamins and supplements: click here to view the video.
