At the Geriatric Outpatient Clinic, we examine people aged 70 and older, whose memory, information processing or everyday functional ability has become impaired. We invite our customers to attend examinations accompanied with a close relative or friend. Often, our set of examinations includes a brain MRI.

We will review your medication, make a diagnosis, and prepare a plan for you to maintain your functional ability. Further treatment and follow-up will take place at your own health station or in home care. Based on a doctor's assessment, some of our customers will be monitored by a memory coordinator.

The Geriatric Outpatient Clinic team includes doctors, nurses, a physiotherapist, a psychologist, speech therapists and memory coordinators specialising in geriatrics.

You need a referral to become our customer. You can get a referral, for example, from your own health station.
