University of Utah Health's Geriatric Patient-Centered Medical Home provides comprehensive, high-quality, and coordinated care for older adults so they can get the health and wellness they need.

Average Age for Geriatric Patients

Geriatric care serves the health and wellness needs of adults at the age of 65 years and older. Anyone in this age range can receive primary care in our patient-centered medical home.

However, our team is best suited to provide care for people who are:

  • 85 years and older,
  • have functional or cognitive limitations, or
  • multiple, chronic medical conditions.

Geriatric Care Services

Our geriatric doctors (geriatricians) are specially trained to diagnose and treat the unique health care needs of older adults. They take the time and care to:

  • complete a medical exam for patients,
  • explain any complex health and medication concerns with their patients, and
  • provide patients with individualized treatment options.

  • Primary care
