Medical care

A Summit ElderCare participant visiting his personal doctor"It’s hard trying to manage all my husband’s appointments at all his different doctor’s offices. And it seems like I’m the one making sure all of his care and services are coordinated. Sometimes I wonder if I have all the bases covered."

At Summit ElderCare, you’ll have one team in one place providing medical care, advice, coordination and support.

When your loved one joins Summit ElderCare, he or she will receive individualized care and services by a team of health professionals who specialize in geriatric care and work together to meet your loved one’s needs.

What caregivers are saying about Summit ElderCare

"Right from day one, the medical care was very impressive. I suffered with leg ulcers for over nine years. After joining Summit ElderCare, my wounds were dressed by the same nurse twice a week and are now healed. "—Marilyn, Summit ElderCare Worcester participant
