We strive to meet the special needs of older people, especially those who are frail. We evaluate and treat older people with geriatric syndromes, functional decline and pain.
We provide inpatient and outpatient services for the frail elderly requiring tertiary care.
In the inpatient setting, we have specialized elder care wards which include Acute Care for the Elderly (ACE) units, Geriatric Evaluation Management and Subacute Care (GEMS) units and Geriatric Monitoring Unit (GMU) for the delivery of holistic and geriatric sensitive care to our patients.
In the outpatient setting at the Centre for Geriatric Medicine, our facilities include consultation and treatment rooms, a sick bay for frail older patients who need to lie down and rest while waiting for consultation or admission, an onsite pharmacy, and an onsite physiotherapy gym for geriatric rehabilitation.
We are supported by various clinical support services located within the hospital. These include laboratory, diagnostic radiology, dental, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech therapy, podiatry, dietetics, psychology, care & counselling and nursing services.
