This program provides consultation and assessment for the purpose of facilitating diagnosis and treatment of geriatric clients with psychiatric disorders.
The team can facilitate referrals to Addiction and Mental health Services, Psychiatric Services, Support Networks and Community Resources.
Assessments can be completed at a lodge, clinic, client home, hospital or long term care facility.
Appropriate referrals include assessments for all dementia types, declining mental health and anxiety, mood disorders (depression), psychosis (schizophrenia), or adjustment disorders where traditional adult mental health services are not appropriate.
Outcomes may include referral to:
- local mental health clinic
- home care
- allied health
- social work
- community resources
