About Post-Acute and Long-Term / Geriatric Care

Our team of skilled providers offer care encompassing both post-acute and long-term care.

Post-acute care focuses on assisting patients after a hospital discharge, working with physicians and nurse practitioners to provide seamless care in transitioning patients from the hospital to what best fits an individual's circumstances, whether that is inpatient rehabilitation, a nursing facility, or something else.

Long-term care focuses on placing patients in the proper facility and providing all necessary services for their condition and ability, ensuring a smooth transition from home or hospital to nursing facility, then possibly to assisted living or other location to receive care. This type of care is received by all patients who experience an illness or injury that affects their ability to live independently, but is typically associated with older patients. It often overlaps with, though is not the same as, the field of geriatrics.

Geriatric medicine focuses on promoting health and preventing and treating disease and disability in later life. Our providers specialize in the prevention and management of the unique health concerns associated with aging; they provide treatment, manage multiple disease symptoms, and develop care plans that address the specific needs of adults age 65 and older.

At The Jackson Clinic, our team of compassionate experts understands the needs of older adults. We recognize that medical care in later life can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. We are here to ensure your care is coordinated across your entire care team to provide you with the most advanced, holistic care in the region, ensuring that healthcare in your golden years is as seamless and stress-free as possible.
