MedStar Montgomery Medical Center has recently opened a NEW senior primary care center, the Center for Successful Aging (CSA), which utilizes a new model of specialized care to address the specific needs of older adults. CSA provides assessments, diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions; medication management; access to resources and support to help seniors remain in their home as they age; and more.
“Successful aging” can be defined as having high physical, psychological, and social functioning in old age without major diseases. The senior population in Maryland continues to rise to epic levels, making clear the need for comprehensive care and services to help seniors successfully age. The State Department on Aging predicts that people over the age of 60 will make up 25% of the population by the year 2030, up from 18% in 2015.
