Older Adults

Healthcare for older adults at The Garden

“Getting old is like climbing a mountain; you get a little out of breath, but the view is much better!” – Ingrid Bergman

As we age, our healthcare needs might increase. It is at this stage of our lives that we need to find a GP that can look after us and manage conditions as they come up. Even more importantly is to prevent problems before they occur. With thorough, regular check ups and preventative health such as immunisations, getting older shouldn’t be a burden, rather some of the greatest years of our lives. All of our GP’s are trained and qualified in health conditions that might be an issue during the ageing process. Beyond this though, we really love to take care of our older patients, they often provide a special and unique opportunity to reflect on life and how the world is changing.
