Geriatrics Transitions, Consultation, and Comprehensive Care (GeriTraCCC)
The GeriTraCCC service provides short-term Transitional Care or Consultations to frail older adults.
Transitional Care ensures that patients and families experience the smoothest ‘transition’ home from the hospital—a time when many frail older adults are vulnerable to problems with new medication changes, increased difficulty walking or managing daily affairs, or new symptoms from their medical conditions. The GeriTraCCC physician provides care in the home, working closely with a patient’s primary and specialty care providers, as well as home health and hospice agencies. Patients are referred to GeriTraCCC Transitional services by their UCSF hospital team prior to hospital discharge.
GeriTraCCC also provides geriatrics and palliative care consultations to older adults who are experiencing any of a number of problems common with aging or chronic illness, regardless of whether they have been hospitalized.
