Introduction: Gonçalo, a village with 1316 inhabitants of which 573 are 65 years old or older, presents itself as the 'Cradle of Fine Basketry'. Its population, rich in culture and stories to tell, has the support of a day care center for the elderly, where around 20 elderly people spend their days and find social connection. These patients make individual trips to access medical and nursing consultations.
Methods: Creation of a monthly consultation at the day care center for the elderly patients there.
Discussion: At the heart of the practice of a healthcare team is the health and well-being of each patient. Therefore, meeting their needs, reallocating resources and involving the community will lead to health gains. The 'Consultas em Dia' project reflects this same onjective: the need of each elderly person to have access to GP/family nurse consultations joined with the healthcare team's willingness to provide an adapted response. Together we improved access and care delivery … we improved the health of our community!
