With the population of older Americans exploding in the coming years, America’s geriatricians will be spread even thinner than they already are. Making sure that older people receive age appropriate care is extremely important and the Martha Stewart Center for Living at the Mount Sinai Medical Center serves as a sterling example of the right way to approach this subject. Focused on primary care and catering exclusively to older people, the Center for Living emphasizes individualized care based on medical history and lifestyle. Few patients have to wait more than ten minutes to be seen at the Center for Living, and each patient’s unique needs are always made a priority. This is surely the way to approach health care for older Americans.
