Aged care

Aged care at Tweed Health for Everyone Superclinic focuses on both chronic disease management and dementia services. We have close links with the Dementia Outreach Service as well as offer in-house services from psychologists specialising in dementia.

We also offer services to patients in Registered Aged Care Facilities. For all patients over 75 years of age, we can provide an annual in-home assessment with a visiting nurse. This assessment helps us identify any issues with memory, fall-risks in the home, and depression. Along with a general medical check these assessments ensure we can proactively address any problems before they escalate and result in hospital admission.

Older patients often have complex medication lists. Our doctors work with our local pharmacists to regularly review medications as well as suggest the use of dosing aids where appropriate.

In addition to GP care, elderly patients can access a range of allied health care including physiotherapy, psychology, dietetics, speech pathology, podiatry, hearing checks and optometry.
