Older Person Team

The hospital has it's own Older Person Team based on site which provides the following support.

What we do

We have enhanced skills and knowledge in the care of a person living with Dementia, suffering with delirium and patients who may have a risk of falls. We aim to reduce hospital admissions and decrease the length of stay of the older person.


We assist the MDT in gathering collateral history from primary care, secondary care and voluntary agencies and problem solve where appropriate which may prevent hospital admission, this also enables the clinical staff to make informed clinical decisions about the patient care pathway.


We provide training to all staff members, patient and carer support and assists the MDT with discharge planning.


If patients , carers or staff members need any information or assistance regarding a persons care we would always encourage you to speak to the ward team but if unable don't hesitate to call us for help or advice.
