Introduction to Health Assessment Ashgrove
At Ashgrove GP, we offer health assessment of older persons. It is an in-depth assessment of a patient aged 75 years and over. Our doctors provide a structured way of identifying health issues and conditions that are potentially preventable or amenable to interventions in order to improve health and/or quality of life. We offer this health assessment in order to identify any risk factors exhibited by people over 75s that may require further health management.
Our area, with an aging population, aims to assist patients’ medical and non-medical needs, from acute to chronic, through annual health assessments. It is widely accepted that a multidisciplinary approach to aging care best draws on the knowledge and skills of a range of health care professionals to help individuals achieve their highest levels of physical, functional and cognitive health.
