Our highly specialised services are tailored to support those with complex health needs

Care plans may involve individual treatment, group therapy or a combination of both depending on what best meets the person’s needs. Our aim is to help restore health and improve wellbeing. 

We provide support and assurance along every step of the way.

Our specialist geriatricians

Accustomed to caring for people with complex and multiple medical needs, our team of experienced health care professionals work closely with elderly people, and those who support them, to identify their needs, goals and concerns.

They understand that people need to feel confident when making decisions regarding their health. They can provide you with the strength and assurance you need to return home and into the community. They can also help you, and those who support you, explore other options for future care.

How we care for older people

We offer highly specialised services for people with medical and physical concerns associated with ageing.

Our model of care is designed to support individual needs. We specialise in caring for elderly people with complex and multiple medical conditions. We work closely with people and their families to restore health and wellbeing.
Older people admitted to hospital often have a number of different diagnoses and as a result, their care is complex. Our team of geriatricians, general physicians, specialist nurses, physiotherapists and other allied health professionals will work closely with you to support your care needs.
