About the department

The department of geriatrics at Academic Hospital Koblenz-Montabaur specialises in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the elderly. The department is dedicated to health in a phase of life in which several chronic disorders often co-occur and limit independence in everyday life. The medical team develops individual and holistic diagnostic and therapy concepts tailored to each patient's unique needs. Сlose interdisciplinary cooperation with the other specialist departments enables doctors to treat patients individually, professionally, and holistically. Through innovative, evidence-based knowledge, doctors aim to improve the quality of life of older people and their families by providing compassionate, high-quality, and people-centred care. 

The main task is to enable the highest health and well-being while promoting independence, mobility, and physical and mental vitality. Therefore, doctors pay attention not only to the treatment of the disease but also to the mental state of the patients. Therefore, psychologists and pastors also work with patients.
