Geriatric Assessment Programme
Hospitalised seniors who can no longer live independently are assessed by a team that includes the Programme Manager of Continuing Care, a Physician, a Medical Social Worker (MSW), a Psychologist, a District Nurse, a representative of the National Office for Seniors and Disabled, plus representatives of two government nursing homes to determine appropriate services and placement. They may receive Home Care or placement in the KEMH Continuing Care unit or in a nursing home.
Referrals are made through your physician.
If we can answer any of your questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Medical Social Worker for Continuing Care.
