Norton Healthcare Geriatric Care

As we age, we realize our health truly is a gift. Staying active and feeling good become meaningful goals.

Specialized programs and services tailored to help people age 65 and older live healthy and independent lives include:

  • Norton House Calls: This service sends nurse practitioners to homebound seniors so they can maintain their independence longer. For more information on the Norton House Calls program, call (502) 272-5044.
  • Norton Community Medical Associates – Geriatrics: This innovative physician practice provides cost-effective, quality on-site care to patients in nursing homes. For a list of the nursing homes we visit, call (502) 272-5087.
  • Geriatric Care Services at Norton Audubon Hospital: A program focused on caring for senior patients in a way that keeps them active and mobile with the goal of getting them home from the hospital with more mobility than they had when they were admitted.

  • Coping strategies and emotional/spiritual care
