Health Assessments

We are a chronic disease management team for your ongoing care

Our nursing team can provide 75+ health assessments, assistance with Advanced Care Directives and assessments for Team Care Arrangements (TCA).

A TCA is developed with your GP if you have a chronic medical condition and complex care needs requiring multidisciplinary care (or can benefit from other health care providers’ input).

An annual health assessment for people over 75 years of age can help to identify potentially preventable problems and improve overall health and quality of life.

An Advanced Care Directive allows you to record your values and preferences in relation to your future medical treatment.

During a health assessment we will:

  • Identify your health and care needs
  • Determine the treatments and ongoing services you need
  • Set out the services your doctor and our allied health team will provide
  • Discuss the actions you can take to help manage your condition

Please call us on (03) 5441 8622 to secure your appointment
