The number of elderly people in the Northern Beaches area is increasing dramatically, and often with increasing age managing health care becomes increasingly complex. We offer elderly health care checks and immunisations, and assistance with managing long term conditions or mobility problems.
A key part of our role may be coordinating different health services for you, including referrals and accessing allied health. We work closely with our colleagues at the Northern Beaches Hospital –the new ‘BRACE’ (Beaches Rapid Access Care of the Elderly) team can help with falls prevention and cognitive assessments, and the new Mona Vale Community Health Centre has a community nursing team and a continence clinic.
If you are unable to get to the surgery please let our receptionists know – where possible we will try to visit you at home, and we are able to provide services to residential aged care settings.
