The Psychogeriatric Assessment Service is a comprehensive assessment and consultation service provided to seniors 65 years of age and older who are experiencing mental health difficulties and psychiatric symptoms. Physicians may make a referral by calling (905) 883-1212 ext. 3361or by faxing completed Referral forms to (905) 883-2139.

 

Prior to the assessment by a Psychiatrist one of the outreach teams will conduct a visit to the client’s home. The home visit consists of a complete assessment including family history, medical history, mental health and social history. Any changes in behaviour, mood, general health that have occurred recently are recorded.

 

This is followed up by a consultation with a Psychiatrist at Mackenzie Health. The consultation report and recommendation are then forwarded to the referral source.
