House Calls by Resident Doctors
Upon request, home visits by Resident Doctors can be arranged. These doctors are well-experienced in long-term care. They are able to carry out certain forms of treatment within the setting of patients’ homes. They are also able to provide advice regarding long-term care of homebound patients.
State Registered Nurses are able to visit patients at their homes and carry out certain clinical procedures (such as urinary catheterization, change of nasogastric feeding tube and wound dressings).
Outpatient Medical Treatment
Resident Doctors provide outpatient consultation for patients requiring long-term care.
Palliative care provides relief from pain and other distressing symptoms when one is suffering from terminal illness. It allows dying as a natural process, without intending to either accelerate or postpone death. It also integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care and offers a support system to help patients live as enthusiastically as possible, until death. It also offers a support system to help family members cope with the patient’s ailment and their own bereavement.
Post-hospitalisation support is readily available for all patients.
Rehabilitation (Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy)
