Information about Adult Medicine

Overview

Experience a whole new way to stay healthy

The Adult Medicine team focuses on taking care of the whole person. We treat adult primary care patients who are medically complicated and provide additional services to improve patient and community health. Our goal is to give people the support they need to feel their best every day. Adult Medicine patients develop close relationships with their providers. They also have on-site access to a licensed social worker, dietitian, psychiatrist, resource specialist (provided through the Area Agency on Aging & Disabilities of Southwest Washington), and a variety of classes and educational workshops. Patients are eligible for care at all of Vancouver Clinic’s Urgent Care locations and receive referrals to Vancouver Clinic’s specialty departments, as needed.

This free group exercise program helps adults 60 and better become more active and energized, and empowers them to sustain independent lives. The class is led by a certified instructor and includes an aerobic workout, strength-training with soft ankle and wrist weights, and stretching and balance exercises. People of all fitness levels are encouraged to attend. The instructor is trained to adapt activities so that they are accessible to everyone. Movements can be performed seated or standing.

All SilverSneakers classes are designed by experts in older adult fitness and taught by credentialed fitness professionals. SilverSneakers classes are created for adults age 65- plus, however, all motivated adults are currently welcome. The class is geared toward people of all fitness levels and abilities. Modifications are offered and chairs are available.

*SilverSneakers is a free health benefit covered by many insurance plans. Vancouver Clinic can help you determine your eligibility when you come to class! If your plan does not cover the class, a $3 donation is suggested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Zumba Gold®
Come at 10:45 a.m. Wednesdays for the free Zumba Gold® class. Perfect for active older adults who are looking for a modified Zumba® class that recreates the original moves you love at a lower-intensity.
