Trauma Care for Seniors

Helping senior patients get back home

After a traumatic event, many just want to get back home. We want that for you, too. The most common traumatic events that our senior patients face include:

  • Falls
  • Motor vehicle crashes
  • Sports-related injuries

At St. Luke’s, our trauma team responds to traumatic events with compassion and expertise. We will help you recover, regain your independence and return to the comforts of your own home. While you're still with us in the hospital, we will support you, as well as your family, and aim to make you as comfortable as possible.

We make sure the healing process is focused and personal from the moment you arrive. After you return home, a care coordinator will connect you to services and resources to help you live as safely and independently as possible.

In the case of a traumatic event, it’s important for you and your family to know where you want to go.
