The fastest growing population is the geriatric patients above the age of 65 years fueled by the baby boomers. Most live independently and would like to stay active and participate in communities and family affairs. This requires special needs and compassionate care and looking into their multiple medication profile which is the most commonly overlooked problem by most health care professionals.

We also go to several nursing homes in Conyers (Rockdale Health Care) and Covington (Riverside nursing home, Covington Manor)
