The mission of Boston Senior Medicine is simple: to prevent senior hospitalizations through extraordinary house call medicine.
We understand that it is often difficult for seniors to leave their homes for regular visits. We also understand that that many senior hospitalizations can be avoided with more access to care, vigilance, and communication between patients, families, and providers.
Attention to detail, excellent communication, and community partnerships are paramount. We listen first, take the time to explain, then follow through and communicate.
