Geriatric Medicine



 

Older people often require special care when visiting or being admitted to hospital, especially if they are confused or suffering from dementia to some degree.

 

Epworth is dedicated to ensuring that their care is as good as it can be, and also respectful of their needs and as calm and supportive and possible. Swift access to our own Intensive Care facilities in the event they are required provides additional peace of mind for patients and carers.

 

Elderly patients are assured of a high quality of care within a sensitive multidisciplinary team approach including doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals, supported by an Aged Care Assessment Service. The Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) at Epworth Richmond assesses acute and rehabilitation patients for community care and support packages, programs and services, aged care rehabilitation, and approval for Commonwealth-funded aged residential care.
