Service and Access Details
Description (Service) Program is offered in collaboration with the Center for Healthy Aging/HHSC/St Peters Hospital in Hamilton.  
 
Inpatients must be referred to the program at West Lincoln Memorial Hospital by a Physician. They are initially assessed by a Nurse Clinician. This involves a comprehensive, standardized, assessment of a person's physical, psycho-social, cognitive, functional,environmental needs and abilities. The patient is then seen in the clinic by a Geriatrician, at a later date. 
 
Outpatient referrals are assessed as above, and are completed by a Nurse Clinician at the person's place of residence, with a family member or caregiver present. The patient would proceed to the Outpatient clinic at a later date for a Geriatric Assessment appointment with the Geriatrician. A consultation report is generated for the referring Physician and recommendations for care/tests/services are shared.  
 
Follow up clinic appointments as determined by the Geriatrician. Other Health Professional cross referrals ,when appropriate, on a case by case basis.
