Why Premier Health

At Premier Health, we know that caring for our elder patients is especially important. In fact, we have created the Elder Care program to provide superior care to seniors admitted for hospitalization.

The Elder Care program at Miami Valley Hospital strives to help patients:

  • Understand the goal of elder care
  • Learn about the programs and services offered for seniors at Miami Valley Hospital
  • Access a list of helpful online resources about elder care, both locally and nationally
  • Determine if it is safe for the patient or their loved one to live alone
  • Have access to a nursing home checklist to use while visiting nursing homes in the area

No matter what the situation, the Elder Care program at Miami Valley Hospital is here to help.

The Elder Care program is associated with “Nurses Improving Care to Health System Elders” (NICHE) a nationwide geriatric initiative sponsored by New York University and The John A. Hartford Foundation.
