About Grand Rapids Eldercare Physicians

Thank you for visiting the Grand Rapids Eldercare Physicians section of The Eldercare Channel. Primary care doctors who specialize in the health care of senior citizens are called eldercare physicians. These doctors are specially trained in the needs and issues that are common to people as they age. They also will probably have the experience and know-how to ask the right questions and look for specific symptoms in their patients to ensure that all ailments or potential ailments are caught as early as possible. Seniors and caregivers tend to prefer working with eldercare physicians because of this high level of care that they receive. When looking for a new doctor, get recommendations from friends and make sure to meet with several physicians before settling on one. It’s important that you be comfortable with your doctor and be able to trust that they have your best interests at heart. If you’re looking for eldercare physicians, The Eldercare Channel of West Michigan has many helpful articles and resources that could aid in your search. We provide advice and tips on what to look for in a doctor, as well as many other issues that are common to seniors and caregivers. To the right, you will find a comprehensive directory of eldercare physicians in the area. Our video host, Catherine Jacobs, is an estate planning and elder law attorney with Cottrell & Jacobs PLC.
