Geriatric assessment clinics

The Baycrest Geriatric Assessment Clinics see elderly clients from the community with a wide range of concerns and issues.

We provide comprehensive geriatric assessments as well as referrals to Baycrest programs and support services as needed. Our Clinic is staffed by certified geriatricians and other healthcare professionals.

Referrals can be initiated by family, friends or health professionals such as CCAC but a medical referral form must be completed and submitted by the family physician who will provide ongoing care to the patient.
