Geriatric Outreach Teams
Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) in the older adult’s home or long-term care home is conducted by one or two healthcare professionals in geriatric medicine, nursing, social work, psychiatry, physiotherapy, or occupational therapy. Other health professionals may be involved if needed. They work collaboratively with other healthcare providers to facilitate linkages/referrals and assist in their implementation.

Geriatric Outpatient Clinics
Clinics led by geriatricians, who provide a comprehensive geriatric assessment, care planning, and treatment. They work collaboratively with other healthcare providers, including primary care practitioners, to provide holistic care.

Specialty Clinics/Programs
Clinics or programs which are focused on a specific issue, such as mental health (including memory and mood), pain, falls prevention, and care after being hospitalized. Some organizations also provide programs for caregivers. Click here for a directory of memory clinics in the TC LHIN.

Geriatric Day Hospitals
Geriatric Day hospital programs are recommended for frail older adults living in the community who need to improve their functional ability the following discharge from the hospital or who are at risk of hospital admission because of complexity. Older adults attend the day hospital once or twice a week until their goals are achieved.
