Acute Care for Elders (ACE) unit - A state-of-the-art inpatient hospital unit specially-designed for senior patients, provides geriatric care in collaboration with St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor.
The Division, along with the Geriatrics Center and Adult Palliative Medicine Program, offers a full array of interdisciplinary clinical services and programs as part of our mission to provide our community with the kind of comprehensive, innovative healthcare they deserve.
Adult Palliative Care - U-M offers a range of inpatient and outpatient services across the health system for patients with serious illnesses, and those approaching the end of life.
Hospital Inpatient Care - We provide inpatient care through a geriatric consult team based at U-M Hospital, as well as an Elder Life Program designed to help hospitalized patients maintain their well-being.
Primary Care Clinic - Located at East Ann Arbor Health & Geriatrics Center, we have a comprehensive primary care clinic for treating the health issues common in older adults.
Social Work - Geriatrics social workers provide an array of services for clinic patients, supplementing medical visits with further information, counseling, and assistance.
Specialty Care Clinics - In addition to primary care, the East Ann Arbor Geriatrics Clinic offers numerous specialty services including a blood pressure clinic, a clinic for Chinese-speaking patients, endocrinology and diabetes care, gastroenterology, mobility enhancement, neurology (cognitive and movement disorders), palliative and supportive care, rheumatology, social work, transitional care and more.
Sub-Acute Care - The Sub-Acute Care program partners with several local nursing facilities to help patients transition from hospital to rehabilitation, resulting in fewer readmissions and complications.
Transitional Care Clinic - This clinic helps older patients transition to or from a medical facility, addressing the inherent issues of short- or long-term stays in hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation facilities.
Veterans Care - The Division works closely with the Ann Arbor VA, with U-M faculty and fellows providing a variety of geriatric and palliative services, including long-term and home-based care, through both the VA Geriatric Research Education and Clinical Center, and the VA Community Living Center.
