Social Visiting for the Elderly

Like all practices, we find time is increasingly limited. Some of you will be familiar that ‘the GP used to call around on my elderly grandparents in the old days’. We regret that we cannot offer the same sort of thing these days, despite the fact that (1) we actually enjoy these visits, and (2) home visits allow us to learn a great deal more about our patients. Home visits are for medical needs only and at the doctor’s discretion.
