“Summa developed a care plan just for me.”
When Betty Bell’s memory began to fail, her physician referred her to the Center for Senior Health at Summa Akron City Hospital. Using a team approach, a geriatrician, nurse and social worker evaluated Betty and developed an individualized care plan to help with her dementia. “We go every four months,” said her son Philip. They weigh her, do blood work, check her medication. “They take their time and explain everything. They just treat you like you’re family.”
The Summa Center for Senior Health coordinates every aspect of care to help patients and families cope with the medical, emotional and social problems of aging.
