75 + Home Health Assessments
Patients 75 years and over are eligible for a Home Health Assessment.
These assessments provide an overall health summary which identifies any areas of concern and any services they may need to help them cope at home for as long as possible.
They also provide other health providers such as ambulance and hospitals with an up-to-date health summary which in turn helps immensely in treating any unexpected hospitalisations that may occur in the future.
To follow up after the Home Visit the patient makes an appointment with their GP to discuss the outcome of the assessment. Assessments are bulk billed.
