Everyone grows older and as we do, our health and abilities can change. For those 75 years of age and over as per medical guidelines, we offer an annual health check aimed at keeping you as healthy and as independent as possible.

This is just an indicator of some of the areas that will be covered however every person is different and the check is tailored to your individual needs. At the end of the health check you will be advised if there are any services that may be eligible for or may be of assistance to you. If required the necessary referrals will be created.
