Geriatric Center Speyer

Better living conditions and improved treatment options for previously terminal diseases have made it possible for people to live longer today. However, old age often goes hand in hand with functional restrictions such as an increased risk of falling or more rapid loss of muscle strength.

Whereas young people are able to recover rapidly and easily from acute illnesses, an effort has to be made towards maintaining the independence of elderly people from the very first day of their hospital stay. The Geriatric Center at the Diakonissen-Stiftungs-Krankenhaus Speyer provides geriatric treatments for early rehabilitation with the help of an interdisciplinary team of therapists.

The team at the Geriatric Center Speyer does not only attend to patients from the field of internal medicine. Elderly individuals are also able to benefit from a geriatric co-treatment after severe surgical interventions.

The objective is to maintain their quality of life, to delay the need for care as long and to keep the degree of care required as low as possible.

Geriatric Outpatient Clinic
In our Geriatric Outpatient Clinic patients are treated from Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. - 16 p.m. Patients spend nights, treatment-free days as well as weekends in their home environment.
