Elderly care
Where necessary, the nurse visits the elderly at home and together with them examines how home living is going. She checks, in consultation with the doctor and with the family, whether there are imminent health problems or if more help is needed.

Cardiovasculair disease and risk management
Every year all men over 55 and women over 60 receive a call for a small check-up to see if they run an additional risk of cardiovascular disease.

Patients who are already familiar with cardiovascular disease will, if no longer under the treatment of a specialist, be called by Karin Senior, our practice assistant who will hold a special consultation hour for this.

COPD
Adult using medication for COPD are monitored. Lung function tests are also conducted.

Quit smoking
Many people who want to quit smoking discover how difficult that is. Together with you, the nurse can see which is the best way for you to stop smoking. Use can be made of medicines or nicotine replacement products.
