Our Geriatricians provide inpatient rehabilitation and geriatric/peri-operative consultations at the new Calvary Adelaide Hospital (Angas street). Outpatient Clinic appointments are available at McIntyre Medical Centre, Para Hills West with Dr Kylie Gardner and at College Grove, 18 North East Road, Walkerville with Dr Tam Ho.
We offer comprehensive care for older patients around the time of surgery and work closely with surgical staff to ensure the best possible outcome after surgery.
Our process involves undertaking a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment where priority is given to managing any acute medical and surgical issues in the context of the patient’s broader medical issues and social situation. We undertake a thorough assessment of medical history, medications, social situation and review common geriatric syndromes. During the surgical recovery period we will assess ongoing care and rehabilitation needs and assist with discharge planning.
Pre-operative assessments are available with Dr Gardner at McIntyre Medical Centre, Para Hills West.
For older patients admitted to the new Calvary Adelaide Hospital on Angas Street, we offer an inpatient consultation service. Our specialty areas for review include complex multi-morbidity, polypharmacy, delirium, cognitive impairment and falls.
We provide inpatient medical care for patients requiring rehabilitation admissions to the Calvary Adelaide Hospital, including continuity of care for our peri-operative patients. We are proud to have been associated with Calvary Rehabilitation Hospital/Calvary Adelaide Hospital for a number of years, where our patients benefit from state of the art rehabilitation facilities and a highly skilled and dedicated allied health team.
