What matters to you?

"Studies show that 75 percent of the older adult population have one chronic illness and 60 percent are living with two. As older adults across the country are choosing to approach aging with new vigor, they are seeing multiple specialists, using multiple medications, and seeing an impact on their thinking and mobility. AdventHealth providers demonstrate a high level of passion for this population and are ready to help both older adults and caregivers feel whole as they navigate changing health care needs."

--Anna Hicks, MD, board-certified geriatrician and Community Physician Champion for Age-Friendly Initiatives at AdventHealth Hendersonville

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.

Age Well

What is Age-Friendly Health Care?

The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has designated the AdventHealth Medical Group locations across Western North Carolina as Age-Friendly Health System – Committed to Care Excellence. As an older adult, you can count on your AdventHealth provider to focus on the four essentials of care as identified by the Age-Friendly Health Systems Initiative. Your physician will learn about your goals and preferences within the framework below at your annual wellness visit each year, and your care team will work with you based on what matters to you.

What Matters

When you attend your annual wellness visit each year, your internal medicine provider will ask you a question: 

What matters most to you?

Whether it’s spending time with family, volunteering at your favorite non-profit, enjoying time in nature, or caring for four-legged friends, our providers work with you to design an individual health care plan unique to your specific goals and preferences so you can live the life that keeps you feeling whole.

Medication

Your internal medicine provider will work with you to make sure that when necessary, medications are selected that do not interfere with the things that matter most to you, your mentation (ability to think clearly), or your mobility.  

Mentation

As you age, you may experience changes in the way you think and feel. Your internal medicine provider will work with you and your caregiver to identify, treat, and manage dementia, depression, and delirium across all settings of care including AdventHealth specialists and hospital services.

Mobility

As an older adult you may begin experiencing changes in your ability to move. Your internal medicine provider will work with you to ensure you have the tools needed to move about safely and continue doing the things that matter most to you.

Our on-site Patient Resource Team specializes in matching you to internal medicine providers who best fit your needs based on your location within Western North Carolina.
