Elderly Care

As you age, you may experience a decrease in physical and mental capacity while the risk of developing a disease increases. People of old age may find it slightly more challenging to seek medical care at a clinic or hospital due to reduced mobility, heightened risk of getting an infection and pre-existing medical complications caused by underlying illnesses.

At Speedoc, we eliminate the hassle of travelling to and from medical facilities as our healthcare services are all carried out in the convenience and comfort of your home. Speedoc offers health specialists to assess and manage the elderly’s health conditions and provides personalised diet plans to maximise healthy ageing.
