Regular Visits

Regular home visits allow the team to:
Manage the elderly person’s chronic disease and conditions

Provide caregivers with the necessary health education and training required to care for their frail loved one
Arrange for safe transfer for hospitalisation when necessary
Prescribe appropriate acute and chronic medicines when needed
Ensure the timeline interpretation of appropriate investigations
