The Integrated Care
for Older Persons
Hello, I am Nora and I am 85. Until recently I was living on my own and I was managing well. But after falling ill, I fell and broke my pelvic bones. I came to the hospital and had to stay there for a long time. Afterwards, the doctors decided that I had to go to a nursing home. But my care could have been better coordinated with the Integrated Care Programme for Older Persons. I could still live at home, close to my family and friends and I would get the care I need.
The Integrated Care Programme for Older Persons (ICPOP) could provide person-centred co-ordinated care across health and social care services for Nora and enable her to live at home with every support she needs.
