The goal of the Regional Outpatient Geriatric Medicine Service is to reduce the burden of disability in older adults by detecting and treating reversible conditions, providing optimal patient-centred care, and managing co-existing chronic conditions.

Every patient referred will receive a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) completed by a geriatric assessor (GA) and the geriatrician/ care of the elderly physician (COE).

The CGA guides a multidimensional specialized geriatric team approach that determines a frail older adult’s biomedical, psychosocial, functional, and environmental needs. The team initiates an appropriate treatment and follow-up plan developed with the patient/family/care partner in partnership with primary care, NELHIN Home and Community Care as well as other care partners along the continuum of care.

Transitional Care is available for patients referred by physicians/nurse practitioners in the emergency department that have experienced acute functional decline and are at imminent risk of institutionalization. CGA will occur within 72 hours of referral. The goal is to reduce the likelihood of hospitalization and prevent avoidable decline in high risk seniors with complex medical and psychosocial problems
