Geriatric Care

Geriatric care specialist at North Shore Physicians Group
Our Geriatric Care team consists of board certified physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who provide care to patients staying in several skilled nursing or long-term care facilities on the North Shore. 

Geriatric Care services

Our dedicated care team closely monitors each patient's progress, coordinates and consults with specialists, and keeps both the patient's primary care physician and family informed. When it is time for a patient to return home, the team coordinates a plan of care with the patient’s primary care physician, ensuring there is a smooth transition back to daily life.

Home Visit Program

The Home Visit Program is for patients who are temporarily or permanently unable to come into an NSPG office for appointments due to a long-term illness or chronic condition. Nurse practitioner, Joy Sweetall, N.P., works closely with a patient’s physician to develop a care plan for long-term care, chronic disease management or an episodic condition. 

If you or a loved one would benefit from the Geriatric Care or the Home Visit Program, please speak to your NSPG primary care or specialty physician to learn more.
