Geriatric Services Hub (GSH) focuses on treating geriatric syndromes and conditions such as frailty, through the development of a specialised care plan. A typical care plan comprises structured home based exercises, health coaching and referrals to health and social care services in the community.

Our multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals, comprising a Geriatrician, a Geriatric Nurse Clinician, a Physiotherapist, an Occupational Therapist and 6 Geriatric-trained Community Nurses, work closely with partners to deliver quality care and support to enable seniors to age gracefully in the community.
