Primary Care And You
Family Doctor and Elders
Being a health partner of you and your family, a family doctor provides continuing care and anticipates your changing needs during different stages of life.
Growing old is one of the normal stages of life. Ageing brings about physical, psychological and cognitive changes or decline. Yet, some changes are not normal and may be early symptoms of underlying diseases. Should there be any suspicion of abnormal body changes, it is wise to seek advice from your family doctor who offers assessment and treatment tailored to your needs.
Furthermore, a family doctor also helps you to prevent diseases by various means such as vaccination and evidence-based screening.
