Geriatrics - geriatric care program - geriatrics day clinic

Geriatric wards

The geriatric wards of AZ Jan Portaels treat acute and chronic conditions that occur in elderly patients where, in addition to curative care, a lot of attention is also paid to quality of life and self-reliance. There is close collaboration with the Rehabilitation Department and the social service.


Geriatrics Day Clinic

The renovated Geriatrics Day Clinic  wants to respond to the demand for outpatient diagnosis and treatment, in order to avoid admissions of geriatric patients as much as possible. Thanks to the team's extensive experience, we will undoubtedly provide great value to referring physicians and their patients.

The day clinic team consists of geriatricians and (head) nurses - as well as allied health professionals with a specific feel for geriatric patients: occupational therapists, social nurses, psychologists, dietitian and a speech therapist...
Together they offer a full range of services to patients.

The following programs are provided:
- osteoporosis clinic
- cognitive tests
- anorexia/weight loss check-up
- falls analysis
- transfusion/Injectafer® 
- preoperative check-up.

Of course, tailor-made programs are also possible.
