Working in partnership

The professionals in our geriatric clinics work closely with services available in our community. We assist families to access the care they need for their loved one, whether within the hospital or in the community. We work in partnership with regional networks including the Central Community Care Access Centre, family physicians, health professionals, home support services, multicultural organizations and others dedicated to the health and well-being of seniors. We are part of the Regional Geriatric Program of Metropolitan Toronto, an umbrella organization that plans and coordinates specialized geriatric services.
