Emerald Meadows is proud to have partnered with certified geriatric nurse practitioner Gretchen Schumacher to bring primary care services to our residents in the comfort of their own apartments. She is available to see residents for routine check-ups as well as conduct physical exams, prescribe and refill medications, and order tests and labs as needed. Her patients appreciate her willingness to listen to their concerns, as well as her expertise in managing the diseases and chronic conditions that older adults commonly experience.
Gretchen earned her degree as a family nurse practitioner from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania, and earned her specialization in gerontology from the University of Texas Houston. She has been in practice for over 20 years, and owns and operates Elder Care of West Michigan.
