Senior Urgent Care
At QuestCare Urgent Care, we are dedicated to providing our seasoned citizen patients with exceptional health care. Our efficient doctors give special attention to seniors who are too sick to wait for an appointment but not sick enough for the ER. As we age, our bodies change and weaken. This comes from years of wear and tear on joints, bones and muscles. Other minor health concerns can make everyday tasks difficult.
Falls increase with age and is not a thing to take lightly. The biggest percentages of falls occur in at home. You can help alleviate them significantly by using fall prevention practices.
To help you prevent falls we suggest a program of exercise to improve your balance and strengthen your muscles. Remove your bifocal or multifocal glasses when you walk, especially on stairs. You can also make your home safer by removing loose rugs, adding handrails to stairs and hallways, and making sure you have good lighting in dark areas.
Having to travel to another location for X-rays is the last thing you want to hear when you are in pain. For your convenience, our X-ray department is in-house. Our technicians pinpoint the location of the injury quickly.
Not only will we treat the obvious, but work to find the underlying cause. Dizziness, balance disorders, osteoporosis, visual problems are things that can contribute to a fall. Our labs are equipped to get to the root of the problem in a hurry. Our doctors determine the best approach to helping you on your way to better health.
We aim to provide you with the treatment you need to sustain your independence, overall health, and well-being. From medical, to orthopedic to nutritional needs, you can be sure that you’ll get what you need at QuestCare Urgent Care.
