Along with mental and physical care, CenterWell Primary Care centers will also provide transportation for its patients.
“That is a wonderful, wonderful thing because as you get older, sometimes it's a lot harder for you to drive and especially if your appointment is late and it starts getting, you know, in the wintertime, it gets dark early and a lot of senior citizens have problems seeing at night,” says Nancy.

He says that he struggles with keeping up with appointments and believe that specialized care for seniors is strongly needed.So far no word on when the Centerwell Senior Primary Care facilities will be open.
