A new partnership between Age UK North Tyneside, TyneHealth and NHS

About Care Plus:

  • We are a community and mainly home-based NHS service.
  • We see the frail, older people who are registered at a North Tyneside GP practice.
  • We are a 9am-5pm weekday service.
  • We are an award winning multidisciplinary team. (Consultant Geriatricians, GPs, Pharmacist, Community Matrons, Physiotherapists,Occupational Therapists, Health Care Assistant, Social Worker and Age UK North Tyneside)
  • We receive referrals from GPs and other health professionals.

Our aim is to:

  • Address frailty, health and wellbeing in older people.
  • Promote independence and help patients remain in their own homes for longer.
  • Reduce social isolation by linking patients to our and other partner community activities.
  • Set appropriate short term goals and work together with the patient until they are met.
  • Educate patients as well as ourselves.
  • Deliver high quality, holistic care, tailored to patients’ needs.
  • Work with our patients and their families to avoid the need for an unnecessary trip to the hospital.
