Bariatric Care

What is Bariatric Care?

Bariatric care is a specialised field of medicine focused on treating and managing obesity and its related health problems. It encompasses a wide range of services to help individuals achieve and maintain healthy weight loss, improving their overall well-being. Bariatric care is primarily aimed at individuals with extreme obesity or people who despite lifestyle changes, still suffer from weight-related health problems. Obesity can challenge individuals in a variety of ways including:

  • Restricted mobility
  • Skin problems
  • Mental health and depression
  • Struggle sleeping 
  • Discomfort
  • Breathing inconsistency

Bariatric care aims to prevent further complications and encourage a healthier way of living, with support tailored to every individual’s needs and medical conditions. Obesity is linked to an increased risk of developing some cancers and strokes, heart attacks, type 2 Diabetes as well as musculoskeletal problems.

Assessment

We begin by understanding individual needs, preferences, and goals through an initial assessment, ensuring our care plans are tailored to meet specific requirements.

Care Plan Development

Based on the assessment, we create customised care plans that address unique needs, incorporating family input and individual choices.
