Senior Care Clinic Medical House Calls brings home a much-needed service.
Senior Care Clinic Medical House Calls' mission is to provide personalized, high-quality geriatrics medical care in the home environment where our seniors live.

We specialize in the care of homebound seniors, with an associated diagnosis of physical debility; dementia; diabetes, cardiovascular disease, palliative care, and other chronic disease conditions.
What is our practice model?
This practice model is sometimes called hybrid direct care medical practice. While there is a large variation among practices, there are some basic similarities. Direct Care practice means there is a direct financial relationship with patients. Some patients opt to pay a retainer, typically $100 to $350 or more a month. In return, primary care providers (PCP) provide primary care services with more access and more flexible hours or provides the services in patients' own home. This allows providers to have fewer patients and still remain viable as a practice. It also allows providers to provide other services, since each practice may offer services in a slightly different manner. Some may exclusively do home visits, or primarily offer medical services in an office setting. (Source: Concierge Medicine Journal). We also do Transitional Care Management (TCM) and have also adopted the Chronic Care Management (CCM) model. Please call us to learn more about our specific practice model.
Geriatrics Medical Care: We review and reconcile medications; we prescribe and refill medications according to the plan of care; we co-manage with other members of the healthcare team (e.g. home health) for ongoing state of health of the client.
Annual Physicals: where going to the doctor's office is a challenge (e.g. dementia; debilitated; bedridden; or simply no family member or responsible person available). We will do the physical examination at the client's own home or place of residence (e.g. Retirement Home, Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, or Board & Care Home)
Full Laboratory Testing: we arrange for laboratory testing without the client leaving home. We arrange for specimen collection (e.g. blood draw, catheterization, and the like). We arrange for X-ray or ultrasound exams done in the home. Results are reviewed by the medical provider. Some services may not be covered by Medicare.
Adult Immunizations: such as Flu vaccine, Pneumonia vaccine and others as indicated, done in the patient's residence.
Preventive Health Care: on going visits to monitor responses to medications and other therapies; evaluate home safety; evaluate level of care, and the like.
LIC602 (Physician's Report), TB Testing, and other requirements for facilities, accomplished where the client is located and in shorter turnaround time (3 days if including TB test and reading), no need to leave home.
What is a Nurse Practitioner?
Nurse Practitioners (NP) provide primary, acute and specialty health care, and today are playing an increasingly important role as primary care providers (PCP) for millions of Americans nationwide. Holding advanced degrees and completing extensive acute and specialty care preparation, NPs combine clinical expertise in diagnosing and treating health conditions with an added emphasis on disease prevention and health management to assess patients, order and interpret diagnostic tests, make diagnoses, and initiate and manage treatment plans — including prescribing medications.
