The Community Geriatric Service (CGS) based in Campbelltown Hospital has being expanded during winter, 2018. The service now covers nine of the 10 residential aged care facilities (RACFs) in the Campbelltown and Camden LGAs. The Frank Whiddon Masonic Home in Glenfield will be covered by Liverpool Geriatric Service.
The service has geriatricians and a senior community nurse available weekdays between 8.30am and 4.30pm except public holidays. The CGS aims to assist in managing acute and complex medical conditions in nursing homes and review complications of chronic comorbidities including dementia with the consent of the resident’s GP. The service maintains close contact with the GP and the RAACF when attending a resident. Visit the SWSPHN website for referral details and form.
