Specialized Geriatric Services Central Intake
Specialized Geriatric Services (SGS) Central Intake is designed to be a simplified streamlined intake process with one referral form and one contact number. All referrals sent to the SGS Central Intake will be triaged by a health care professional and the referral will be forwarded to the most appropriate SGS.

Patients are referred by their Primary Care Practitioners. Patients must live in their own home (house, apartment, condominium, retirement home). Referrals cannot be accepted from long-term care facilities, nursing homes or out of province.

Geriatric Day Hospitals
Day Hospitals are out-patient programs that provide multidisciplinary assessment and/or treatment for patients who are experiencing a change in function, memory, mood, mobility or have complex medical issues.  Treatment, counselling and education are available to patients and their caregivers to optimize health and independence.

Many patients have already been seen in their own home by the Geriatric Outreach Assessor before an appointment is made for a Geriatric Day Hospital.  Patients may also be referred through the Emergency Department Geriatric Emergency Management (GEM) Program by family physicians or from in-patient units.  A physician referral is required.
