Geriatrics

Older adults at Mount Sinai are served in various settings throughout the medical center, including Internal Medicine Associates (IMA), Phyllis and Lee Coffey Geriatrics Associates, and other specialty clinics and inpatient units. Social workers in geriatric practices provide individual and family counseling about the specific challenges of aging. They also assist with transportation, home support services, and the acquisition and maintenance of benefits such as Medicare/Medicaid. Referrals to Adult Day Programs and Senior Centers are also facilitated.
