Primary Care

For many patients in our area, access to a primary care physician remains a challenge. Without this continuity of care, patients and families often struggle to manage chronic medical conditions and may feel that their care lacks coordination. With this in mind we offer primary care through our clinic to patients over 55 without a current primary care provider. Patients seeking primary care through Blount Senior Care Partners should expect care that is individualized, accessible, and focused on maximizing function and quality of life.

Patients being cared for by our providers in the hospital or skilled nursing facility can arrange a new patient visit at time of discharge. Patients new to our practice should call our clinic to arrange an appointment.

Continence Care

We now offer PTNS, or percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation, for men and women with overactive bladder, urgency, and/or urge incontinence. The treatment is a gentle and gradual way to modify the nerve signals from the bladder to the brain, helping patients to go to the bathroom less and have fewer accidents.

Transitional Care

Transitioning from one site of care to another poses one of the biggest challenges and risks to seniors in modern healthcare, whether it’s confusion about medication changes, unexpected home medical equipment needs, or changes in clinical status. Blount Senior Care Partners aims to help patients make a smooth transition home from the hospital or skilled nursing facility.

Following discharge, Blount Senior Care Partners can provide a Transition Visit, a clinic visit soon after discharge, to ensure a smooth transition back to primary care providers or to provide ongoing medical care for those without an established provider in the community.

At the core of our practice is the belief that

patients aren’t just treated, they’re cared for,

and this philosophy transforms the way we care for our patients, ensuring they receive the individualized geriatric treatment they need and deserve.
