Our team-based clinic provides improved access to geriatric assessment services as close as possible to the communities where patients and their families reside.
On referral from your family physician, the clinic will include a comprehensive functional, cognitive and physical patient examination. Cognitive assessments completed by PCN staff include the Mini Mental Status Exam (MMSE), Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCAÓ), Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS) and when clinically indicated the Frontal Assessment Battery (FAB). Clinic appointments generally will be scheduled for 2 hours.
All patients who attend the clinic are encouraged to bring a family member or other support person as the family will be actively involved with the patient's consent.
Format: Consultations and treatment as needed
