 What We Do

The Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Team visits residents at 10 long-term care homes in central Toronto.

We work collaboratively with doctors and other care providers in these homes to provide geriatric mental health services, including consultation, assessment and follow-up care.

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
