Improve mobility and independence for people with complex care needs
Matilda Nepean offers individualised inpatient care programs for older adults in a dedicated medical and geriatric ward supported by our experienced and caring team.
The program is suitable for any older persons following an admission to hospital or an acute illness. Patients can be referred to the program from the community or via discharge from another hospital.
Our multidisciplinary care team includes geriatricians, rehabilitation specialists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, social workers, speech pathologists and nursing staff.
Our program is focused on improving an individual’s mobility and independence to support and enable a safe discharge. Our team works together with patients and their families to help achieve their desired goals and to achieve the highest level of health, wellness and independence possible for the individual concerned.
An individualised program of care based on a person’s particular needs
Under this model of care, an individualised program is developed for each patient’s specific needs. This can potentially include:
- a medication review
- a physical assessment including balance and strength and the assessment of the potential benefit of mobility aids
- suitability for a falls prevention program
- a cognitive assessment
- dietitian review including specific dietary requirements and food allergies
