Taking care of our ageing population
East Health's ElderCare service provides a coordinated approach to the health care of older people.
ElderCare supports older people to live independently in the community.
It can provide you and your whānau with information about health and community services for older people and assess you to access the appropriate services. It offers health education to community groups about ageing positively.
Your doctor and practice nurses work closely with the ElderCare and can refer you to our service.
Your doctor and/or practice nurse can refer you to the ElderCare team.
