What We Do

​The Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Team visits patients at the following long-term care homes in central Toronto:

  • Castleview Wychwood
  • Cedarvale Terrace
  • Christie Gardens
  • Fudger House
  • Hellenic Care
  • Kensington Gardens North
  • Kensington Gardens South
  • Lakeside Long-Term Care Centre
  • Leisure World
  • Mon Sheong
  • O'Neill Centre
  • Vermont Square

We provide geriatric mental health services, including consultation, assessment and follow-up care, in the long-term care homes we support. We work collaboratively with doctors and other care providers in the long-term care homes.

If you live in one of the long-term care homes we support, you may be assessed by our team when:

  • Your medical condition prevents you from seeking care in the community
  • You are not already seeing a psychiatrist or participating in a program in the community or at a hospital​
