The Health of Older Persons Team operates in the Horowhenua.

The Team takes referrals from Support Links and the Palmerston North Hospital PEDAL Team to address unmet medical or social needs for people over 65 .  In addition, the Team, including a physiotherapist, accepts referrals from the hospital Emergency Department when a falls assessment is required for a person over 65.

The physiotherapist can teach falls prevention exercises and access mobility equipment. Liaison is maintained with primary health care teams who remain the person`s main health care provider.
