Sick Visits Q & A

What are sick visits?

Sick visits are intended to diagnose and treat health problems needing same- or next-day attention. Your sick visit is devoted to managing your current health problem and helping you as quickly as possible.

Your Frontier Adult Day Care provider may schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress or refer you to a specialist if they suspect your symptoms indicate a more serious problem.

What conditions are treated during sick visits?

These are a few examples of the conditions frequently treated during sick visits at Frontier Adult Day Care:

  • Coughs
  • Sore throat
  • Respiratory infections (flu, cold, pneumonia, COVID-19)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sinusitis (infected sinuses)
  • Stomach aches
  • Migraines and other severe headaches
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Minor cuts and injuries (slips, falls, burns)

Many adults need a sick visit when they have a sudden flare-up of a chronic condition, such as asthma, arthritis, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

What happens during a sick visit?

Your Frontier Adult Day Care provider evaluates your symptoms, completes a physical exam, and runs lab work if needed. The goal is to quickly diagnose the cause of your symptoms and prescribe treatment that puts you on the fast track to feeling better.

You may need over-the-counter or prescription medications. Or your provider may recommend self-care measures you can use to improve your symptoms and support healing.

What is the difference between a sick visit and urgent care?

As your primary care provider, Frontier Adult Day Care should be the first place you call when needing prompt medical attention, whether that means a sick visit or urgent care.

Sick visits and urgent care diagnose and treat many of the same conditions. The difference often lies in the severity of the problem. Urgent care is best for more severe problems or symptoms requiring attention faster — they often can’t wait for a next-day appointment.

The providers at Frontier Adult Day Care can help you decide which service you need. After asking a few questions, they quickly assess the severity of your condition and recommend the best level of care.

If you or your loved one uses adult day services, you can ask for a sick visit appointment while you’re there.

Call Frontier Adult Day Care if you have questions about the level of care or you know you need a sick visit. You can also use the online booking feature to request an appointment.
