Outpatient Services

At Mount Sinai, our treatment team provides primary care and consultation for older adults and their loved ones, including a comprehensive assessment of physical, psychosocial, and functional status in an outpatient setting.

We place an emphasis on helping our patients who are struggling with issues such as memory loss; gait, falls, and balance problems; incontinence; loss of independence, hearing and vision loss; and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias or Parkinson’s disease. Whatever challenges our patients face, we place an emphasis on providing care so that they achieve the best quality of life and maximal independence possible.

The Martha Stewart Center for Living

The Martha Stewart Center for Living serves to promote and facilitate access to health care resources for older adults and to enhance the public perception of aging. Through The Martha Stewart Center for Living, patients and their caregivers have access to programs and resources appropriate for their needs and interests. These may include medical care, healthy living activities, educational programs, caregiver support, and community referrals through the most up-to-date technologies and evidence-based information.

Mount Sinai at Home

Mount Sinai at Home cares for patients in their own homes by matching their needs to the appropriate complexity of medical care. We treat patients in familiar and convenient environments to improve communication, coordination, and continuity of care, as well as to reduce the risk of admission and readmission.

Hospitalization at Home treats patients with a condition that might otherwise call for hospitalization, such as acute pneumonia. Rehabilitation at Home cares for patients who need services that might otherwise be provided at an inpatient rehabilitation center.
