Older Aged Senior Lady Bundanoon Care

At The Practice Bundanoon, we understand the unique healthcare needs and challenges faced by older adults. Our team of compassionate healthcare professionals are dedicated to delivering personalised, respectful, and dignified services to our elderly patients.

Our Aged Care Services include:

  • Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments: We offer comprehensive assessments to evaluate the overall health and well-being of our elderly patients. These assessments help identify any existing medical conditions, cognitive impairments, functional limitations, and psychosocial concerns. By understanding each individual’s specific needs, we can develop tailored care plans to optimise their quality of life.
  • Chronic Disease Management: Many elderly individuals have chronic health conditions that require ongoing management. Our healthcare professionals are experienced in providing specialised care for conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, and respiratory disorders. We work closely with our patients to develop effective management strategies, including medication management, lifestyle modifications, and regular monitoring.
  • Medication Management: Aging often comes with multiple medications and potential interactions. Our healthcare professionals will conduct comprehensive medication reviews to ensure appropriate drug usage, minimise adverse effects, and enhance medication adherence. We collaborate with community pharmacists and other healthcare providers to optimise medication management for our elderly patients.
  • Falls Prevention and Mobility Assistance: Falls are a significant concern for older adults and can lead to serious injuries. Under the guidance of our occupational therapist Wendy Leaper, we prioritise falls prevention by assessing risk factors, providing guidance on home safety modifications, recommending exercises to improve strength and balance, and offering assistive devices. We aim to help our elderly patients maintain their mobility and independence.
  • Mental Health Support: We recognize the importance of mental health in the ageing population. Our healthcare professionals provide compassionate support, screening for common mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety, and appropriate referrals for counselling or psychiatric care if needed. We also offer strategies to enhance cognitive function and promote mental well-being.

As part of our commitment to comprehensive aged care, The Practice Bundanoon has established a strong partnership with Warrigal Nursing Home. We recognize the unique needs of nursing home residents and provide regular visits and on-site medical consultations. Our healthcare professionals work closely with the nursing home staff to ensure seamless coordination of care and optimal health outcomes for residents.

Through our partnership with Warrigal Nursing Home, we offer the following services: 

  • Regular Medical Consultations: Our healthcare professionals visit Warrigal Nursing Home to provide on-site medical consultations. This includes routine check-ups, management of chronic conditions, medication reviews, and addressing any acute medical concerns. We aim to ensure that residents receive timely and appropriate medical care within the comfort of their own home.
  • Care Planning and Coordination: We collaborate closely with the nursing home staff to develop personalised care plans for each resident. This involves regular communication, care plan reviews, and coordination of services such as specialist referrals, diagnostic tests, and allied health interventions. Our goal is to provide holistic care that addresses the physical, emotional, and social well-being of residents.
  • Family and Resident Engagement: We actively engage with residents and their families to ensure their voices are heard and their preferences are respected. We provide clear communication, education, and support to families, empowering them.
