Senior Emergency Center
Your gift for the Senior ERSM will help us to continue providing specialized emergency care to address the unique and often complex needs of adults ages 65 and over living in your community.
An alternative to the traditional rapid pace of the ER, a specialty-trained team of emergency physicians, nurses and other health care experts at the Senior ERSM will thoroughly assess the patient’s physical ability, cognitive status and level of risk for pre-existing medical conditions, medication interactions, insufficient nutrition, dementia, living condition concerns and even depression. This innovative approach helps to develop a personalized care plan that promotes recovery, health and wellness.
Patients will also benefit from amenities including pressure-reducing mattresses and reclining chairs; soft lighting and noise buffers to reduce anxiety; and non-slip / non-glare floors, handrails and hearing and vision aids to enhance safety.
Your generosity will help us to provide emergency services that meet the needs of seniors in your community.
