We help you age as well as possible

Nurses support and guide

Contact your health care centre and book a consultation with a nurse in Health care for the elderly.

Nurses who provide the service seek to:

  • Identify risk factors and provide education on age-related factors related to health and well-being. 
  • Assist in improving and/or adapting to the changes that have taken place in health and well-being
  • Promote self-confidence, independence and increase sense of security
  • Assess the need for and provide guidance on aids and/or prosthetics if necessary
  • Provide advice, guidance and information on the service measures available

You can get more information about arrangements of the health care on the website of your health care centre.

Age-related changes

With increasing age come changes in the body and an increased risk of disease. The interplay between age-related changes, illness and medical use can lead to lessened abilities.

The purpose of health care for the elderly is to:

  • Facilitate access to health care
  • Support older people to promote and maintain mental, physical and social health
  • Find resources that help people be able to live at home for as long as possible

Those aged 70 and over are encouraged to make an appointment with a GP for a general check-up. Blood pressure and blood sugar are measured and medication use and other topics are reviewed as necessary.
