Our Missions

Our unit has cross-functional missions, which are to:

  • offer hospitalization to elderly persons coming directly from home or through the Medical Surgical Unit, for a worsening acute chronic condition or a surgical procedure.
  • conduct an overall medical, psychological and social evaluation, with consideration of the patient experience.
  • perform diagnostic tests and provide treatments that cannot be done on an out-patient basis.
  • treat chronic conditions or imbalances
  • provide an adapted and coordinated approach once the patient is admitted
  • prevent dependency and iatrogenic complications (undesirable effects related to a medical procedure), in particular drug interaction.

Our Care Pathways

Our unit offers various care pathways, guaranteeing quality multidisciplinary medical care delivered by professionals from multiple specializations.

  • In the Medical Surgical Unit, we do everything we can to minimize the patient’s waiting time and admission process. If necessary, a geriatric evaluation can be performed by a geriatric physician on site during the day. Physicians are also on call
  • For hospitalization, either planned or after going through the Medical Surgical Unit, the patient is admitted for treatment by a referring physician who may be a geriatrician, or another doctor who can work directly with the geriatrician.
  • For ambulatory patients (those not hospitalized), we offer:
    -geriatric evaluation consultations
    -preventive check-ups for healthy aging, at the check-up center
