Program Description

The Seniors Mental Health Outreach Program serves anyone 60 years of age or over who is experiencing depression/ anxiety, memory deterioration or confusion, overwhelming fear of harm, feelings of social isolation, alcohol or drug misuse, or caregiver stress. The program serves the aging population and caregivers by assisting individuals with mental health disorders of recent onset complicated by age-related illness or functional needs. It also serves persons with serious mental illness requiring complex care, or those with behavioural difficulties associated with dementia. A comprehensive geriatric assessment, including a focused mental health and psycho-social assessment, is completed. We assess emotional, behavioural, functional, social and physical health, and follow up with a variety of treatment approaches to resolve problems. The program also provides referral, consultation and advocacy with other organizations.
