Options for Elderly Patients Who Can’t Get to a Medical Centre Regularly

For many elderly patient’s transportation to a medical centre for their regular medical checks and GP visits can be difficult. What this means – for those in the community that need it most – access to quality healthcare is limited. Many elderly people living in aged care facilities have no access to a visiting General Practitioner!

The solution: a mobile medical centre for aged care home visits! It’s a service that Southport Metro Medical can offer, as it brings quality and professional healthcare services and experienced medical practitioners directly to the older members of our Gold Coast community, and completely eliminates all of their and your transportation worries.

If you have a parent, grandparent, family member or even a friend living in an aged care facility with no access to transportation, then this service could drastically improve the quality of their life. Plus, if you find yourself regularly taking the time to help drive them to their medical appointments, this service can mean more quality time spent visiting with your loved one rather than the back-and-forth of doctor’s visits.

Southport Metro Medical’s aged care home visits is a service that helps the local elderly people live their life as fully and as comfortably as possible, especially those that are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness. Our doctors identify and treat symptoms which may be physical, emotional, spiritual or social.

We bring our friendly and professional team to aged care homes on the Gold Coast on a weekly basis to ensure continuity of care. We take the time to give each and every patient the care and attention elderly deserve. We look forward to helping you take care of your health.

What We Give Back To Society

Thank you for supporting our clinic by being part of our community and patient base. In 2015, 2016 and again in 2017 we have been proud sponsors of and avid supporters of children in sport across many disciplines. As parents ourselves we recognise the importance of active body, active minds and promoting healthy living from a young age.

Many of the clubs, teams and individuals we have sponsored over the years have excelled to win premierships or be selected as representatives of QLD, Australia and even New Zealand.

Among the young athletes have been many that have travelled both Nationally and Internationally to a vast range of locations. We always encourage those that have travelled to countries where children are less fortunate than themselves to share the experience by providing them with care packages and sports equipment for those children.

Additionally we also support teens, adults and seniors in Netball, Rugby Union, Basketball, Hockey, Equestrian and V8 supercars.
