Geriatric Mental Health Program

Our geriatric program provides ongoing follow-up support to seniors in a safe environment of their choosing.

Our program consists of nurses, mental health caseworkers and social workers who provide:

  • Counselling
  • Health teachings (medication, diagnosis, symptoms and recovery)
  • Support for family and links to community supports
  • Advocacy


If someone you know suffers from these symptoms, they may be suffering from a mental illness:

  • Mood changes, including burst of emotion, feeling excited or depressed, increased energy or impulsivity
  • Change in sleep patterns or spending habits
  • Hallucinations - seeing and hearing people, or smelling, tasting or feeling things that are not real
  • Hold strong beliefs that may be unusual and out of character
  • Excessive worry, suspicious thinking, rapid speech
  • Cognitive problems related to depression such as confused thinking, trouble concentrating, poor memory or hard to engage in conversation

Take a screening test to better identify the early symptoms of depression.
