We provide diagnosis, management and treatment of illness in older people, usually aged 65 years and over. We also offer advice on the prevention of illness and accidents.
Some of our patients have medical conditions or illnesses that require regular support from our qualified and experienced staff. Some patients require intermediary care services to allow them to resume their best level of health and then return to independent living.
Patients we see include the elderly who’ve had stokes, falls, those with Parkinson’s disease, dementia, presbycusis and osteoporosis. We offer help and support with all aspects of personal care in a safe, secure and relaxed environment.
We diagnose, manage, treat and support patients with neurological conditions that can damage the brain, spinal column or nerves caused by illness or injury.
Patients with nervous system diseases, trauma, or disorders often have complex needs and our neurology service aims to improve their function and well-being whilst reducing their symptoms.
We see patients with many neurological conditions including: chronic headaches, dizziness, neuralgia, strokes, meningitis, encephalitis, polio, brain and spinal cord injuries, Bell palsy, cervical spondylosis, brain or spinal cord tumours, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer disease, epilepsy and motor neurone disease.
Respite and convalescence care
Respite care looks after and cares for patients to give the main caregiver a break. Respite can vary in time from part of a day to several weeks. We provide this care for patients allowing carers to enjoy time off without worrying.
Convalescent is a person recovering from illness. Patients may be discharged from hospital following an operation but may not be ready to go home. Our convalescent care offers post-operative support and recovery time for patients to regain full strength before they return home.
Patients diagnosed with diabetes will often need to make changes to their lifestyle, diet and personal care and we can help a patient adapt to a new way of life.
Diabetic patients often need to control the amounts of carbohydrates in their diet to help regulate their blood sugar. We offer support and advice in choosing appropriate food choices.
If anti-diabetic drugs are required to lower glucose levels in a patient’s blood, our nursing staff can administer the medications as necessary.
Gastroenterology is the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the digestive system. We work alongside our gastroenterology specialists to support patients with many types of digestive disease and offer rehabilitation services.
Often patients diagnosed with gastroenterology conditions are required to make lifestyle changes and take medicines and our staff offer support and help administering the medications as required. We offer the opportunity to rest and be cared for following gastroenterology surgery too.
Rheumatology is the investigation, diagnosis and management of patients with arthritis (rheumatoid and osteoarthritis) and other musculoskeletal conditions (ankylosing spondylitis).
We work with our rheumatology consultant to diagnose and help manage patients with rheumatology conditions. We offer advice and education on the condition, how to function better, manage the pain and exercise. We aim to help rheumatology patients to carry out daily activities themselves and enjoy leisure activities leading to an improved quality of life.
