Outpatient Services

Older adults may struggle with issues like memory loss, balance issues, and hearing and vision loss. It may be hard to tell if you are experiencing an illness or the natural aging process. At Mount Sinai, we provide primary care and consultation for older adults and their loved ones. We perform comprehensive assessments of your physical, psychosocial, and functional status. Our services take place in an outpatient setting.

We have special expertise in issues such as memory loss; gait, falls, and balance problems; incontinence; loss of independence, and hearing and vision loss. Our experience with neurological disorders includes conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias as well as Parkinson’s disease. Whatever challenges you and your loved ones face, we can help you achieve the most independence and the best quality of life possible. We are here to help.

The Martha Stewart Center for Living

The Martha Stewart Center for Living offers programs and resources for older adults and their caregivers. These include medical care, healthy living activities, educational programs, caregiver support, and community referrals. We have two convenient locations: at The Mount Sinai Hospital on the Upper East Side and Mount Sinai-Union Square.

Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Outpatient Practice

At Mount Sinai St. Luke’s, we offer primary care outpatient services for older adults in the Morningside Heights and West Harlem communities. We address your medical needs and offer support for your caregiver. We have information on health care resources and community organizations. We can also help you obtain those services. You can also participate in healthy living activities and educational programs at St. Luke’s.

Mount Sinai at Home

Mount Sinai at Home cares for patients in their own homes. We match your needs to the appropriate level of medical care. We offer treatment in familiar and convenient environments. This approach improves communication, coordination, and continuity of care. It also reduces the risk of admission and readmission.

Hospitalization at Home treats patients who might otherwise end up in the hospital. For instance, we can treat acute pneumonia while you remain in your home. Rehabilitation at Home is geared to patients who might need an inpatient rehabilitation center. We can provide the services you need, right in your home.
