At each stage of care and in each setting, age-friendly well being programs observe 4 parts of high-quality care, the 4Ms:
- What Issues to You—Know and align care with the older grownup’s particular well being final result targets and preferences
- Mentation—Forestall, determine, deal with, and handle dementia, despair, and delirium
- Mobility—Make sure the older individual strikes safely day by day
- Remedy—If it’s mandatory, make sure that it doesn’t intrude with the opposite three Ms

Any older grownup who is available in, it doesn’t matter what their want is, they’ll have constant, evidence-based care that’s centered on the distinctive wants of older adults,” says Thomas Caprio, MD (Res ’03, Flw ’05, MPH ’10, MS ‘15), principal investigator of the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP) grant and director of the Finger Lakes Geriatric Schooling Middle.
