Welcome to SeniorCareOfColorado.com!

We hope you find what you're looking for here. Please call us at 303.306.4321 for more information or 303.306.4329 to schedule an appointment with a provider.






IPC/Senior Care of Colorado provides high-quality, personalized medical care designed especially for older adults throughout the Denver Metro area and beyond.





We care for our patients in our clinics, as well as select retirement communities, assisted living, rehabilitation, and skilled nursing centers. We work with specialists and hospitalists who provide expert day-to-day hospital care. And in certain Denver Metro area hospitals, those physicians are part of our own IPC family.




Our goal as clinicians is to maximize our patients’ quality of life and ability to function well. And respecting the patient’s individual wishes and desires is an important part of that process. Sometimes that even means reducing the number of medications they’re taking. Or gaining a thorough understanding of the psycho-social issues that affect their lives.


             




"Finally, I've found a doctor who listens to me and involves me in making good, informed choices about my medical care."

Understanding Advanced Practice Clinicians

If you're like many Americans, you have seen a Physician Assistant ("PA"), like me, or a Nurse Practitioner ("NP") at some point for medical care, yet perhaps you're not exactly sure what we're all about. You may have heard of us collectively called midlevel providers, non-physician providers, or physician extenders. For our purposes in this article, we'll refer to PAs and NPs together as "Advanced Practice Clinicians," or "APCs."

"My approach to medicine is to look beyond the person standing in front of me with one particular complaint to see the big picture: their environment, their family, their history...you understand so much more about how to help the patient when you view the situation from a broader context."

Truths About Sex in Your Senior Years
 

iStock 000017291895XSmallLosing one’s sexuality is NOT an inevitable fact of aging. In fact, engaging in healthy sexual activity can help keep you young at heart—both emotionally and physically. Sex can be part of an overall lifestyle that includes many aspects of self-care: healthy eating, exercise, fulfilling, supportive relationships, a positive outlook, a preventive healthcare/wellness routine, and stimulating mental and physical activities.

“I really like working with seniors because I feel like I'm spending time with patients at a meaningful time in their lives. It’s an honor and a privilege for me to be involved with them during what can be challenging times, and I like the relationships I build with seniors and their families in the process.”
