What is geriatric medicine?

If you or a loved one are facing health issues associated with ageing, The Wesley provides specialist care to help face these challenges. More than half of adults aged 65 or older have three or more health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, dementia, high blood pressure, incontinence, impaired vision or hearing loss.

Our geriatricians work with you, as well as with your family or caregiver, and other members of your healthcare team, such as your GP, pharmacist or allied health provider, to support healthy ageing, reduce your risk of functional decline and maintain your quality of life.

Conditions treated include:

  • Cardiovascular disease.
  • Cognitive impairments.
  • Delirium.
  • Depression.
  • Functional/physical decline.
  • Incontinence.
  • Parkinson’s disease.
  • Stroke.
