Welcome to the +2a unit!

Text

PRESENTATION OF THE UNIT

The unit cares for patients aged 75 or more who require a specific healthcare approach owing to their frailty, to the presence of an active polypathology (several acute or chronic concomitant conditions) or to the presence of geriatric syndromes such as acute confusion, poor balance and falls, undernutrition, loss of autonomy, a combination of psychological and social factors...

The approach to treating such patients is both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. In addition to the healthcare provided, the patient receives nursing care, social care, kinesiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological care, speech education, nutritional care, etc.
The purpose of this global healthcare is for the patient to resume, as quickly as possible, a sufficient level of autonomy and to improve his/her quality of life.
 To achieve this, a project focusing on the patient is rapidly developed by the multidisciplinary team and the patient’s relatives (level of autonomy, psychosocial resources, etc.)
