Senior’s Care

Senior’s care at Tweed City Family Practice focuses on both chronic disease management and dementia services. We also offer in-house services from psychologists specialising in dementia.

We also offer services to patients in Registered Aged Care Facilities. For 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 pro-actively address any problems before they escalate and result in hospital admission.

Older patients often have complex medication lists. Our doctors work closely with our local pharmacists to regularly review medications.

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