Seniors' Care

Seniors’ Care


Seniors are the fastest growing population and the greatest consumers of health care services in Ontario. Coming to the hospital for any reason can become a pivotal event in a senior's life. Seniors can face, or be at risk for, adverse events, surgical complications, loss of independence, increased lengths of stay or re-admissions, infections or delirium.  

 

At WDMH, we are commitment to providing excellent care for the elderly throughout the hospital. To support this goal, we have developed a senior-friendly care plan. 


WDMH is a member of the Regional Geriatric Program of Eastern Ontario. This network encourages the development of specialized geriatric services throughout the region, promotes best practices and supports collaboration among health care providers. The goal is better outcomes for frail seniors. The network links primary care physicians, hospitals, community health professional and others.
