How To Find A Doctor For My Mom Or Dad

Finding the right doctor

It can be challenging to find the best doctor for your parents. You may spend significant time researching options to ensure that your mom or dad receives the comprehensive primary care they deserve. It’s crucial to find a primary care physician who is compatible with your parent’s personality, care needs, and health goals—after all, they play an essential role in their health as they age.

You may want to look at a primary care office’s reviews and doctor recommendations to determine your parent’s needs. Do they provide access to specialists or social support? Can they offer preventive, curative, and palliative care consultations? We invite prospective members and their loved ones to tour our facility, meet the doctor, and ask questions to ensure we’re the best fit.

Patient satisfaction is always our top priority. We want your parent to feel wholly supported, so we assign each member a SeniorSelect Guide. We tailor treatment plans to your parent’s care needs so that their time in office is efficient, effective, and meaningful. We also offer onsite podiatry, a 24-hour provider on call, and extended time with the doctor to make sure we answer all questions they may have.

SeniorSelect is more than a primary care office: we also have built a community that allows seniors to socialize and get active! Schedule a consultation today and discover the SeniorSelect difference.


Meet Doctor Mills: our SeniorSelect Center physician

Doctor Stephen Mills is dedicated to providing SeniorSelect patients with high-quality care. With more than 25 years of work in the medical field, Doctor Mills brings experience and expertise to the SeniorSelect Center. As a board-certified internal medicine physician with a background in osteopathy, Doctor Mills uses a holistic approach to treating his patients. 

Many doctors focus solely on curative treatments to help senior patients recover after falling ill. However, Doctor Mills understands the importance of preventive and curative care, empowering seniors to develop mindsets, habits, and lifestyles that help fight and prevent illness. That’s why he’s an active part of the SeniorSelect community, joining members for planned nature walks and encouraging healthy attitudes for a happy lifestyle.


Holistic healthcare

We know seniors have complex health needs, so we’ve tailored our comprehensive Health Care + Life Care programs to address physical, mental, emotional, and social health. Although the SeniorSelect center is a nonresidential care facility, your parent will discover new resources and communities here that will make it hard to stay away!


Senior mental health

Seniors’ mental health often goes unnoticed by doctors who only consider physical care. Still, poor mental health can affect their physical conditions and ability to access the resources they need. Proper mental health care is the key to maintaining a happy and healthy life, so our treatments account for every aspect of your parent’s care needs.


Life-changing resources for your mom or dad

Finding a doctor for your senior parent can be tedious, especially for seniors with various health and life care needs. We go above and beyond at the SeniorSelect Center, actively addressing each aspect of your parent’s health with our Life Care program.


Our Life Care program

When your parent begins the SeniorSelect journey, their care is our top priority. New patients complete a Life Care 360 assessment of their medical needs and receive an Initial Engagement Plan that details their first 30 days in our care. For the first few weeks, we’ll hold follow-up meetings and weekly check-ins to ensure that your parent is satisfied with the support they’re receiving. We will also work with you and your parent to develop an individual Life Care Monitoring program that details their long-term care.


The COPC medical network

We are committed to meeting every senior’s healthcare needs so that SeniorSelect members can access the complete COPC medical network. Patients benefit from health services such as:

  • Cardiology
  • Fall prevention
  • Physical therapy
  • Respiratory services
  • Diabetes management
  • Tobacco cessation
  • Hospital care management
  • Skilled Nursing Facility care management


SameDay Centers

Emergency room visits can be time consuming and costly, especially for seniors with various medical care needs. With COPC SameDay Centers, your parent can skip the emergency room and find medical support outside regular office hours.


Superior senior care                 

You should never have to struggle to find the healthcare resources your parent needs. At the SeniorSelect Center, we prioritize your parent’s health with shorter wait times and longer care visits. The SeniorSelect Center is also unique because we have the ability to provide extensive in-house care services, including:

  • Primary care services
  • Lab draws
  • Telehealth visits
  • Care coordination
  • Life enrichment activities
  • On-site podiatry


A one-stop shop for senior health

It can be exhausting for seniors to track down the resources they need to maintain their health. That’s why we’ve designed a center with in-house services to account for your parent’s physical and mental health needs, all in one place. From visits with Doctor Mills to lab draws and exercise classes, your parent will find everything they need and more right here at the SeniorSelect Center.


Encouraging a healthy lifestyle

Just because you’re aging doesn’t mean you have to stop living! Our Life Enrichment program helps seniors establish and maintain active lifestyles to elevate their overall health. Every day, your parent can participate in activities like chair yoga, strength and movement classes, Metro Park walks with Doctor Mills, or meditation.


Social engagement

For many seniors, reaching retirement age can be lonely and isolating. These feelings may seriously impact their mental and bodily health, which is why our Life Enrichment program focuses on more than just physical activity. Your parent can join the thriving SeniorSelect community by participating in fitness classes, art workshops, lifestyle lectures, or even simply by enjoying a chat with friends and family in our Welcome Café.


Living with peace of mind

Finding the right doctor for your parent can often feel like a weight lifting off your shoulders. At SeniorSelect, we are dedicated to proving that you’ve made the right choice in trusting us with your parent’s care. We know how important your parent’s health and well-being are, which is why we strive to provide high-quality, comprehensive care for our senior patients.

SeniorSelect is more than a primary care office—we provide patients with holistic treatments that reflect their needs and health goals.
