Geriatric

The Division of Aging and Geriatrics provides outpatient clinical care for elders with dementia, depression, and other mental disorders. These teaching clinics are staffed by Jason Schillerstrom, MD, Ricardo Salazar, MD, and Donald Royall, MD. Each elder referral receives brief neuropsychological testing which screens for memory, problem solving, and mood impairments. Medication management and psychotherapy targeting the maintenance of self care activities and caregiver stress are offered. The division also provides consultation services for local nursing homes and for Adult Protective Services.
