Healthcare Benefits

There are many facilities in Thailand who specialise in geriatric or elder care. These centres provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary geriatric assessment and preventive health check-up program as well as on-going primary care and speciality care for elderly patients. Many have staff with American board-certified geriatric physicians who are specialists in the evaluation and treatment of older adults. In addition, our team includes registered nurses, pharmacists and dieticians who have special training and interest in working with the elderly.

These centres offer comprehensive services including:

■ Annual health check-up program for the elderly
■ Consultative geriatric assessment for elderly patients with multiple medical problems
■ Primary care for older adults
■ Diagnosis and treatment of geriatric syndromes such as osteoporosis and dementia
■ Vaccinations for the elderly

The foreign & commonwealth office of Great Britain endorses the view that many hospitals in Bangkok are up to western standards and provide quality care. Thai health care insurance is available subject to existing health conditions.
