Older Adults Health

As you age, your health needs become more complex. Our services and programs help you and your family prepare for and manage these changes — for a longer, healthier, happier life.

The people, places and things you love take on new importance as you grow older — and so does taking care of yourself. A healthy lifestyle and the right preventive care can help keep you active and feeling good for years to come.

Taking care of yourself as you age means more than eating right and going to the doctor when you’re sick. It means taking a proactive, preventive approach to your physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. It also means working with your doctor, family and healthcare team to make decisions that affect your care and your future.

Comprehensive Services for Seniors

At El Camino Hospital, we’re dedicated to providing you with the healthcare, information and resources you need in this stage of life. We offer a full range of healthcare services for older adults, including our Senior Health Program and mental health services through our Older Adult Transitions Services (OATS) Program.

And, we offer lifesaving treatment for conditions that are more common as you age, such as cancer, heart disease and lung illness.

We serve a diverse population and offer services for specific heritages and backgrounds, such as our Chinese Health Initiative and the South Asian Heart Center. Our professionals and volunteers are trained and experienced in working with diverse cultures and individuals — we can develop a care plan that aligns with your preferences and belief system.

Community Thought Leaders

With advances in technology and treatment, older adults today are not only living longer, they’re living more fully and enjoyably. For example, advances in hip and knee replacement and arthritis management are helping men and women stay mobile and active.

And, wellness and preventive care is more personalized, taking into account your personal and family health history and identifying risks to actively prevent disease and complications instead of reactively treating illness as it arises. Information technology has made it easier to research conditions and treatments, empowering older adults and caretakers to make more educated and appropriate health-related decisions.

El Camino Hospital is doing more than just keeping up with technology and advances in health management and treatment. We’re helping to shape a healthier future through innovation, leadership and partnering with forward-thinking organizations and individuals. We’re committed to the health and well-being of older adults — not only to those seeking care in our hospitals and clinics, but to anyone who needs them.

Our services span well beyond clinical care, including:
