Senior Health Services

When it comes to the care of aging adults, we at UC Irvine Health SeniorHealth Services believe in combining the latest evidence with a compassionate, whole-person approach to healthy aging.

We are known worldwide for our groundbreaking research as well as our treatment and prevention programs. UC Irvine Medical Center is ranked 39th among the nation's top hospitals for senior care by U.S. News & World Report.

The UC Irvine School of Medicine's Division of Geriatric Medicine and Gerontology is nationally recognized and respected for its advances, especially in training young doctors and providing resources and leadership to combat elder abuse.

Our physicians, nurses and other staff members are devoted to treating our patients with respect and compassion. We listen to and address the concerns and medical issues of our patients.

Working at Orange County's only university medical center, we are also committed to teaching medical students the principles of caring for older adults so that all future physicians understand the needs of older adults and treat aging patients with compassion, dignity and respect.

To make an appointment, call us at 714-456-7007.

We offer a wide range of services to meet the needs of aging adults and their families, including:

Primary care

  • Adults ages 50 and older can schedule an appointment with a UC Irvine Senior Health Services geriatrician for ongoing primary care or a consultation regarding specific health concerns.
  • Our physicians provide preventive healthcare and treatment for acute and chronic illnesses.

Specialized care

  • Our expertise is tailored to the specific needs of older adults. 
  • If you or a loved one suffers from memory loss, falls, frailty, urinary incontinence and functional decline, our physicians can help.
  • You can see our physicians for either a one-time consultation or for ongoing primary care.

Memory Assessment Clinic

Have you ever misplaced your keys, forgotten a phone number or drawn a blank when trying to recall someone's name?

For some individuals, this type of forgetfulness is a normal part of aging and is not a cause for concern. When memory loss becomes disabling or interferes with daily living, it may be a warning sign of dementia.

It's important to identify and address the underlying cause of memory loss. If you have any concerns, make an appointment by calling 877-427-7824.

Health Assessment Program for Seniors (HAPS)

HAPS is a comprehensive assessment for older adults with complex health concerns. It is a two-step process:

  • You will first meet with each member of our multidisciplinary team, which consists of a geriatrician, geropsychologist, pharmacist, dietitian, social worker and occupational therapist. After this meeting, our HAPS team assembles a comprehensive plan of support that is specific to your needs.
  • After the team assessment, patients and families return for a personalized family conference where team recommendations are reviewed.
