Aged Care Clinics
Geriatricians provide a holistic assessment to older people with multiple chronic medical conditions. We manage older people’s medical conditions with consideration to all aspects of their health and their overall quality of life.
We assess and manage falls, incontinence, muscle weakness, frailty, fatigue, cognitive impairment, and delirium.
We are a multidisciplinary service focussing on identifying fall risk factors in older people who have fallen, who are at risk of falling, or who are unsteady on their feet. We then aim to modify or improve any reversible risk factors, using exercise, medication review and deprescribing, treating other contributing medical conditions, recommending glasses and footwear adjustments and/or suggesting home modifications.
