Geriatric Evaluation & Management

The Methodist Hospital Geriatric Evaluation and Management (GEM) Clinic offers assistance to older adults and their families when quality of life has been affected by changing health conditions.

Who May Benefit from a Geriatric Evaluation

Individuals who will benefit most from our clinic include those who are experiencing the following situations:

  • Memory loss
  • Multiple medical conditions
  • Social/psychological issues
  • Falls
  • Incontinence
  • Wandering
  • Depression
  • Weight loss
  • Decline or lack of independent functioning

We work with your physician and review medications, illnesses, impairments, home environment and other influences that contribute to the older adult's well-being. Then we put together a plan to address some of the difficulties the individual and family may be facing.

Referrals or inquiries are welcome from anyone, including patients, family members, friends or health care professionals.
