Senior Care

If you’re a senior citizen, you should connect with our network of special programs and services for those in their golden years. You can participate in a variety of senior care and wellness programs, or maybe you’d enjoy one of the area’s premier retirement living communities - UHS Senior Living at Ideal, covering Southern Tier communities near Binghamton, NY.

Through our many programs and services, including a wide variety of home care options from specialized nursing care, monitors and nutritional supplies, durable medical equipment and many therapies, we can help you age as healthfully as possible.

Senior Care is also referred to as Elder Care and Geriatric Care.

UHS achieves prestigious ‘Senior-Friendly’ designation

A hospital stay can be a source of stress for older adults and their families.  Ensuring that our nurses are well prepared to recognize and meet the unique needs of elderly patients is critically important to UHS, which is why we take part in the “Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE)” program.

As a result of several initiatives in place throughout our hospitals, UHS has been designated by NICHE as “Senior-Friendly.”  The 2024 designation shows success in the implementation of high-quality, System-wide initiatives that demonstrate a commitment to the care of older adults. Click here to learn more.

The UHS Center for Advanced Wound Care benefits people suffering with Chronic Wounds by utilizing a personalized and targeted approach.  

Almost 7 million people in the US are living with a chronic wound right now!  A person with a wound has an average of 3 to 4 CHRONIC CONDITIONS like Diabetes, Peripheral Artery Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, and COPD.

Reasons for not healing can include poor circulation, infection, edema, insufficient nutrition/lack of protein, immobility, and continued trauma.

We have advanced therapies available including specialized dressings, skin substitutes and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

You do not need a referral from another provider, but to qualify for our services you must have an "OPEN WOUND" rather than a rash or a bump.  We will be happy to speak with you on the phone before scheduling an appointment to make sure the services we offer are appropriate for your problem, or we will help you to determine what office would best serve your needs.

We are open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
