Geriatric Assessment & Support

The Primary Care Centre offers a Geriatric Assessment & Support clinic that conducts comprehensive assessments for medically complex elderly patients. The team meets with elderly patients who typically have multiple health problems and may have limited access to resources and help. This clinic can help patients access medical and community services, provide support for personal needs and identify care gaps that need to be addressed. After an assessment and initial treatment at the clinic, ongoing care is provided by the patient's family physician.

The geriatrics assessment team consists of:

  • Geriatric nurse consultant
  • Social worker
  • Pharmacist
  • Physician with special interest in seniors care
  • Consultant geriatrician, psychiatrist and neurologist

The team can assess for a range of medical, social and psychological concerns such as:

  • Safety (hazards, medications)
  • Function and mobility (falls, transportation)
  • Health and nutrition (diet, pain control, chronic disease management)
  • Mental health (cognitive function, depression)
  • Psychosocial issues (family support, abuse/neglect)
