Welcome to UCLA Geriatrics
The mission of UCLA’s new GeroNet is to serve as the gateway to our extensive educational, research and clinical resources dedicated to aging and the health care of older persons. We offer users an abundance of aged-related resources covering education, research, and clinical care.
The Geriatrics Special Care unit at Santa Monica Hospital is proud to announce the launch of the UCLA Companion Care program. Companion Care pairs specially trained volunteers with older patients while they are hospitalized to assist with activities such as reading, feeding, and going on walks.
An innovative and unique intergenerational program at UCLA gives seniors an opportunity to mentor bright, enthusiastic college students while giving their caregivers a much needed break. TimeOut @UCLA is a student-run respite program offered free-of-charge to older persons who need companionship and enjoy socialization and meaningful conversations. Learn more >
