House Calls for Seniors
Primary and preventive care is essential to our senior population. However, it can be stressful and time consuming for family members and caregivers to get seniors in residential care, memory care or group home communities to regular appointments.
Bluestone Vista offers families of seniors the opportunity to have a Mankato Clinic provider team that includes a geriatric doctor, nurse practitioner and/or physician assistant visit their loved one in their residential living facility on a regular basis.
The Mankato Clinic provider team works closely with family members and staff at residential care communities to make sure that patients receive individualized care in a safe and familiar environment. Each resident’s personal provider team oversees all medical issues — providing the patient with the comprehensive and compassionate primary and preventive care they need.
