Senior Services at McLaren Oakland

McLaren Oakland Senior Care Center is the right choice for you.

At McLaren Oakland, we understand that hospitalization can be a difficult, frightening, even a disorienting experience for anyone, but it can be especially difficult on elderly patients. That's why we've designed inpatient services to help reduce anxiety, promote comfort and ensure the safety of our senior patients. We recognize that senior patients have specialized needs and that patient and family-centered care is imperative for creating a positive experience for the older adult patient.

Geriatrics is a relatively new division in medicine. It recognizes that care for seniors is different from care for the routine adult patient just as pediatrics is different from adult care. It means that our nursing staff is committed to creating a hospital culture where the principal focus is on patients and their families to improve safety, efficiency and quality of care.
