About the Service
As part of Older Adults & Home Health, the AT&R Service provides a specialist inpatient service for older people and is dedicated to improving and maintaining the health and independence of older people. The service is a mix of geriatric medicine and rehabilitation for older people who often have multiple or complex needs.
AT&R receives referrals for patients from the community/primary care sector and acute hospital services. We provide care and rehabilitation for older people including those recovering from an injury, illness or age related condition such as stroke or Parkinson’s Disease.
We will help you tackle problems associated with disability or aging that are affecting your day to day living. We will work with you and your family to plan your care and help you achieve your healthcare goals. Your team may include doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech language therapists, social workers and needs assessors depending on your issues and goals.
