Geriatric Services is offering an inter-professional team approach to out-patient comprehensive geriatric assessments for clients 65 years and older.

This may include concerns related to frequent falls/fall risks, functional assessment, cognitive/memory evaluation and persistent pain. Out-patient assessments will be conducted at a clinic located in Wascana Rehabilitation Centre (WRC) and may also include an in home visit to assess their home environment. Following the comprehensive assessment by the inter-professional team, a consultation summary will be provided. Proposed medication changes or further investigations/tests will be suggested as recommendations, not unilaterally initiated by the team.

The goal of this community based program is to optimize independence, autonomy and health of the older person to remain safely in their community and to prevent and avoid unnecessary emergency department visits and hospitalizations.

For further information or to access this service, please see the attached brochure.
