The Masonic Care Community has Physicians on Staff
The Masonic Care Community is proud to have a team of 3 full time physicians on our staff. Dr. Elif Erim, our Medical Director is a Geriatrician, who has specialized in the care of seniors. Dr Erim is joined by Dr. Kevin McCormick, and Dr. Florin Oleanu who provide the very best in care to our Health Pavilion Residents.
On the close of National Rehabilitation Awareness Week, one item in particular that the entire MCC Rehab team wanted to discuss was fall prevention.

No one plans to get sick, or schedules an accident. Things happen, forcing us to make decisions quickly. In many cases, we are flying blind, we have never been in this situationg before. We just don't know what to do especially when it comes to our loved ones health and wellbeing.
