Telemedicine uses two-way videoconferencing to deliver assessments and treatments throughout Ontario.
It reduces patient and family travel outside of their home community.
What we do:
We provide Comprehensive Geriatric Assessments for older adults, and when it's needed and appropriate, we connect you with community support services. A Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment is a multidimensional, interdisciplinary diagnostic process to determine the medical, psychological and functional capabilities of an older adult to develop a co-ordinated and integrated plan for management.
The Geriatric Medicine Telehealth Clinic looks after people who have complex conditions associated with aging. These conditions include memory loss, mobility problems and falls, bowel or bladder difficulties, poor nutrition or unexplained weight loss, and challenges managing multiple illnesses and medications.
