Aged Services

Aged Services Emergency Service Team (ASET): The ASET team work specifically with older people who present to the emergency department at both the Albury and Wodonga Hospitals.The ASET team work to prevent hospital admissions where possible, and support older people to return home with the care and support services needed to maintain their ability to live in the community safely.

Acute Geriatric Evaluation and Management (A-GEM): The A-GEM program operates at the Wodonga hospital and supports older patients who are experiencing functional decline as a result of acute illness or chronic and complex health conditions associated with ageing. The A-GEM team provides comprehensive assessment and management of a person's physical, emotional, cognitive and functional abilities. The A-GEM team support people to return to a realistic level of independent living with the skills and supports necessary to self-manage their health and this often means patients are referred to other programs, such as the Transitional Care Program, for ongoing care.
