Older people's health

Supporting older to people to live well, and with confidence.

Ensuring our older people are able to live well, as independently as possible and maintain a high quality of life is important to both our community, and our health services.

Across the Southern health system are an extensive range of services for older people to support their health and wellbeing. We also appreciate the role of the wider community in supporting their safety and independence.

See below for information about services for older people, including falls prevention, needs assessments, and supporting the right living environment.  

If you are concerned about a family member, or someone in your community, please discuss with your general practice in the first instance.
