UNC's Center for Aging and Health helps older adults live well longer.
At the Center for Aging and Health
We provide the highest quality of clinical care to older patients; connect families and caregivers with community resources; and train the next generation of Geriatricians.
But we don’t stop there. Improving care for older adults means training different types of providers – including dentists, pharmacists, cardiologists, and oncologists – in best practices of geriatric medicine that are grounded in research, informed by patient priorities, and guided by compassion.
Whether you’re a medical resident applying to our Fellowship programs, a Triangle resident looking to become a patient, or a clinician taking our courses, the Center for Aging and Health can connect you to the right resources for aging well.
Notes for the Record
“As the clinic Social Worker, a big part of my job is to ensure that patients and caregivers are aware of community supports. There’s a lot of help available, if you know where to look. But perhaps the most important thing I do is listen to people and validate their struggles. Some problems don’t have easy solutions, but it always helps to know you’re not alone.”
