Do you want to stay active for family, friends and grandkids, address concerns about family history or get answers to an issue you’ve been experiencing? Let AgeWell Center for Senior Health help. We’re a unique type of primary care in Jacksonville for people 65+ who want to be proactive with their health to live their best life.
A Different Approach
We’re not your typical doctor’s office.
We won’t rush you. Our doctors take the time to listen and will spend 30 minutes or more with you at each visit.
Children have pediatricians, and adults can see internists, but did you know that older adults have
a specialized doctor just for them called a geriatrician? Helping you get ahead of common aging
issues to live a more active and fulfilling life is their specialty. Our AgeWell geriatricians work
together with pharmacists, rehab therapists and mental health experts who also specialize in older
Under One Roof
Our team works together in harmony under one roof, formally meeting weekly to discuss patient
progress and opportunities, with the united goal of keeping you healthy.
Complete Health Picture
The pillar of our program is the initial comprehensive assessment, which provides a complete
picture of your total health. Now we can gauge where you are and help you make choices to
ensure you stay active and are able to do the things you love.
Your personalized care at AgeWell Center is covered by Medicare.
Not Just Primary Care
We invite you to make AgeWell Center your primary care office, but did you know your existing doctor
can also refer you just for some of our special programs?
You don’t have to accept bladder control problems as just a part of life. Many incontinence issues
can be improved by different therapies offered in our InConfidence program. Pelvic muscle
exercises, behavioral therapy, biofeedback or medication can make a big difference in your life.
Mind Your Mind
Occasional forgetfulness can happen to anyone, but it doesn’t have to be a sign of aging. For some,
adjustments to medication, better nutrition and more sleep can improve memory. Others may
benefit from a cognitive assessment and healthy lifestyle changes.
Get an evaluation to establish a baseline of your balance. Our team works together to develop a
customized conditioning schedule to help you stay strong, stable on your feet, and maintain
mobility so you can keep up with the grandkids.
These programs require a physician referral.
Ask your doctor to call us at 904.202.4243, or they can fill out this physician referral form.
Seniors with Complex Needs
Perhaps a parent or relative has suffered a decline in health? AgeWell Center also specializes in
helping older adults with complex issues. It all starts with our comprehensive assessment. This helps
us get a complete picture of total health to find areas for improvement that can make a difference in
daily life for not only the patient, but for the caregiver, too. Some of the things we can help with are:
- A decline in self care and functions of daily life
- Lack of appetite or unexplained weight loss
- Unsteady balance or at risk for falls
- Bowel or bladder problems (incontinence)
- Multiple medications and/or needs assistance with medication therapy
- Memory loss, dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
- Multiple ER visits or unplanned hospitalizations
- Depression, anxiety
An Expert Team Working Together
Our team of senior-care professionals is led by a board-certified geriatrician, and includes nurses,
pharmacists, rehab therapists and mental health experts with expertise in geriatric care.
What does that mean to you? Many times, a doctor working side-by-side with a geriatric
pharmacist to review your loved one’s medications, or with a nutritionist to help improve diet, is
enough to greatly increase quality of life and reduce ER visits.
Helping You Navigate All the Layers of Care
Let us serve as the point person to help you coordinate care among the many needed services and
specialists. This approach of having one set of eyes on all aspects of care provides better results
than the fragmented care that’s typical among older adults with complex needs.
Patients who are not able to come to the AgeWell Center may be able to get basic primary care
services at home. The program is for patients with significant limitations that make visits to a
doctor’s office difficult. Call 904.202.4243 for more information about the program.
