Senior’s Health
Our Primary Care Network is currently working as part of a Provincial Initiative looking at improving seniors care in our communities. The Primary Health Care Integrated Geriatric Services Initiative started in June 2017.

Work is currently underway in Drumheller and Three Hills. The Drumheller team has created a patient flow map which identifies lines of communication between Physicians, Primary Care nurses and other health care team providers. They have also implemented team visits where you and your care partners will meet with your Family Physician and Primary Care Nurse to sit down together and create a plan of care. Here they will make any necessary referrals to other health care teams such as Home Care, Occupational Therapy or Physio Therapy.

We will also help connect you with available community resources. Our goal is to support you in living well at home.
