How does our seniors integrated care model work?

Our approach is unique because we focus on the whole patient. We look at what has brought the senior to our clinic today as well as what are the underlying challenges that the senior faces in remaining independent and well at home. 

Our clinics are custom designed to provide private and respectful assessment, point of care diagnostics and treatment in a state-of-the-art facility.  A retail pharmacy and therapeutic service areas complement our comprehensive screening, assessment and treatment capabilities creating a “seniors’ hub” for the local community.  Our post visit follow-up program ensures discharged patients receive wrap around care to help them return home safely.

We believe in partnerships!  By working collaboratively with our foundational and local community partners we can provide a community wide seniors’ service hub that is unique, efficient and cost-effective, resulting in:

  • Integrated care – Timely, efficient and effective care in appropriate settings for CTAS Levels 3 – 5
  • A new public healthcare model for OHIP eligible seniors – Driven by the needs of the patient and not the system
  • An improved health status of the local senior population – With individual treatment plans designed to help seniors continue living independently at home
  • An alternative to the Emergency Department – Keeping seniors out of hospital; avoid or delay going to Long Term Care
  • A solid digital health infrastructure – Leveraging the leadership within the community and our partners, rather than creating another level of bureaucracy and management
  • A rich repository of senior-specific clinical data – Facilitating research, education and training of healthcare professionals; and supporting evidence-based best practices in the healthcare of seniors 
  • A respectful and caring experience for seniors and their families
