Better care for seniors begins at home

Seniors often have a tough time traveling to brick-and-mortar clinics and emergency rooms. DispatchHealth offers a smarter healthcare option for seniors: in-home urgent care.

In-home urgent medical care for seniors
DispatchHealth is redefining geriatric urgent care. By sending trained medical staff directly to the patient’s home, we dramatically improve the patient experience.

Unfortunately, many seniors still leave the home for medical care, which can be a burden if they experience cognitive challenges or mobility impairment. Care with DispatchHealth is different. Our urgent care allows for personalized, advanced medical help in the home of the senior.

DispatchHealth also allows seniors to avoid using expensive ambulance services to get to the emergency room because they can’t drive. Our acute care services are approximately one-tenth the cost of a visit to the emergency room, and we can treat almost everything emergency rooms can.

Long wait times and exposure to other sick patients are additional downsides to local urgent care clinics and emergency rooms. Let DispatchHealth help you or the senior you love feel better faster.
Conditions we treat
Our clinicians can diagnose and treat a variety of conditions that impact the elderly. We will work with problems that range from simple to complex, and most ailments in between.

Some of the most common reasons we see seniors include:
  • Falls
  • Skin conditions
  • Lacerations and cuts
  • Altered mental staus
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • Digestive issues (vomiting and diarrhea)
Lab testing
Our urgent care vehicle is also equipped with extensive medications and supplies—about 70 percent of the equipment found in a typical emergency room. Our vehicle even has a lab testing unit that can run a variety of tests, including:
  • Blood tests
  • Infectious disease screening
  • 12-lead EKG
  • Stool cultures
  • Strep test
