Health Assessment for 75 and over
A health assessment is the assessment of a patient’s health, physical, psychological, and social function. It involves the consideration of whether preventative health care and education should be offered to the patient.
A health assessment of an older person is an in-depth assessment of a patient aged 75 years and over. It provides a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions to improve health and/or quality of life.
Our nurse Jana will visit your home to complete the initial assessment. You will then have an appointment with your GP to review the assessment and identify any interventions required.
Chronic Disease Management Plans
A chronic disease management plan enables your GP to plan and coordinate your health care. This can assist you in gaining access to services that are required for ongoing maintenance of your health issues.
Management plans are available to those who have a terminal condition or a condition that has been present or is likely to be present for more than 6 months. This includes but is not limited to diabetes, heart disease, asthma and osteoarthritis.
