Behavioural Support for Seniors Program (BSSP)

Welcome to the Behavioural Support for Seniors Program.

The Behavioural Support for Seniors Program (BSSP) enhances quality of care and life for people struggling with, and demonstrating, difficult behaviours as a result of mental health, dementia, neurological conditions and brain injuries.

This program is for seniors, their families and caregivers, who are living at home or in long-term care homes.

The BSSP is made up of specialized behavioural programs including:

  • community outreach teams,
  • a transitional behavioural unit,
  • long-term care teams,
  • crisis mobile services and
  • an education and training consortium.

The program is also partnering with local agencies such as Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) and other regional and provincial agencies to help streamline the system for Ontario seniors, their families and caregivers.

Baycrest Health Sciences is proud to be the health services lead for the Behavioural Support for Seniors Program as appointed by The Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network.
