At San Dimas Community Hospital, we believe individuals who have lived long lives deserve special attention to their unique needs. San Dimas Community Hospital offers quality medical services tailored for our senior community. From medication consultation to coordinated care for your discharge home, we partner with seniors to manage your health and maintain their independence, no matter what challenges come your way.

Center for Senior Care

We have made changes to provide specialized care in a comfortable environment tailored to seniors. Patient care is delivered by a clinical team trained to meet the unique needs of the seniors in our community.

We are here to help the seniors in our community heal faster and make a smooth transition home. As we age, there are subtle symptoms or indicators that can be easily overlooked. Our team works with patients and their families to consider these factors as well as the natural changes that happen as we age. We also take the time to talk to patients about prevention and to discuss relevant topics to their health, such as increased sensitivity to common over-the-counter medications.

Inpatient Services

The Center for Senior Care features dedicated hospital rooms and specialized services, including:

  • Pressure-reducing mattresses, light dimmers, a more home-like environment, skid-resistant footwear, large, easy-to-read clocks, and backlit, big-button telephones
  • Individualized and specialized assessment and care plan
  • Comprehensive medication review and medication education upon discharge
  • Dietitian oversight and education
  • Coordinated care upon discharge for a smooth transition home

We know that each stage of life has unique healthcare needs and we’re committed to providing the very best care for our seniors. After all, seniors today have a lot to look forward to, and we are glad to do our part to keep them vibrant.

Senior Emergency Services

Our Emergency Department has received Geriatric Emergency Department Accreditation. This accreditation recognizes our focus on the highest standards of care for older adults. To earn accreditation, an emergency department must incorporate a number of best practices for geriatric care, along with inter-disciplinary geriatric education, and have geriatric appropriate equipment and supplies available. Seniors can rest assured knowing that emergency care will be tailored to meet their special needs. The San Dimas emergency team will work together to not only treat your current condition but will take into account other health factors unique to many seniors that may affect your treatment and recovery.

Advanced Primary Stroke Center

We are certified by The Joint Commission in collaboration with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association as a Primary Stroke Center and offers one of the few dedicated stroke programs in our community. Our team of experts delivers life-saving care that increases your chances for a good outcome. Residents in the community and nearby communities can live in the comfort of knowing that a hospital with specialized services for stroke treatment is close to home.
