The aim of the Seniors Outpatient Clinics is to improve your quality of life by optimizing ability and independence. A team that includes geriatric and psychiatry specialists provide assessments and recommend treatment plans. A physician referral is required.
If you or someone you know is having difficulty with falls, self-care, continence, multiple medications, confusion or depression, please talk to your family doctor about your concerns.
Seniors outreach is available to support family physicians and community health care providers when a senior needs further assessment and treatment. In addition, Seniors Outreach Teams may be responsible for investigations of abuse and neglect. Please contact a Community Health Office for more information.
