“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”

— Richard James Molloy

Orthogeriatric Care

Orthogeriatric care is used to address the poor outcomes of hip fracture patients by caring for patients alongside orthopaedic surgeons and with the support of a specialist multidisciplinary team.

Geriatric Rehabilitation

After a medical procedure, injury or serious illness, the first thing on your mind is your recovery.
You want your health back and your life along with it.

Fall Rehabilitation

Falls can result in serious medical complications including hip fractures and head injuries. In many cases, those who experience a fall have a hard time recovering and their overall health deteriorates.

Fraility

Frailty is a vitally important issue in the treatment of the elderly. It is something that most people who live to an advanced age will probably face.

Cognitive Impairment

is an inclusive term to describe any characteristic that acts as a barrier to the cognition process and global intellectual performance

Dementia

The loss of cognitive abilities that occurs with dementia leads to impairments in memory, reasoning, planning, and behavior.
