Special notice to our clients, patients, students, volunteers and friends

The Sanford Center for Aging is taking seriously the public health concerns about the COVID-19 (novel Coronavirus) and the special risks this poses to elders, adults living with chronic diseases, and those who work with them. While doing everything possible to avoid panic or rash action, we are taking all prudent precautions to reduce the spread of the virus. This means we are suspending all our group programs, large events and other activities, and will seek alternate ways to deliver these programs and services.

The clinical services offered in our Geriatrics Specialty Clinic will continue as usual, with necessary precautions.

Please contact us with any questions: (775) 784-4774 or sanford@unr.edu. | See complete details here.

Medicines are important for living well, but as we age, our bodies respond to medications differently.

The Sanford Center for Aging Medication Therapy Management (MTM) Program offers comprehensive medication reviews for Nevadans age 60 and older who are taking five or more prescription medications. The reviews are FREE for everyone, with special priority for low-income, rural and minority participants. Reviews can be done in person or over the phone with our Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist, and you will receive a report with recommendations.

How will you benefit from talking to a pharmacist?

Identify possibly unsafe medications and help prevent side effects.
Improve your understanding of your medications so you can take an active role in managing your health.
Answer questions or concerns you have.
Learn how to get the most benefit from your medications and supplements, and learn whether the supplements you're taking are really making a difference in your health.
