Many older patients who need to see a specialist are unable to do so because they cannot leave their homes. For housebound older adults, or those living in Residential or Nursing Homes, Consultant Geriatrician can bring the care they require right into their home.
A home-based assessment also allows an evaluation of the physical environment to identify risk factors (falls) and equipment needs, review of medicines and observe contact with family members.
A GP referral letter, with summary of all medical problems and latest investigations is necessary prior to the visit. The service includes a comprehensive geriatric assessment and subsequent follow-up visits by Dr Mucci if required.
If admission to hospital is necessary for investigations, treatments or procedures, this can be organized on the same or next day through Spire Sussex Hospital, St Leonards-on-Sea. The same Consultant will continue the care in the hospital to ensure continuity of care.
