Specialized Geriatric Services

Specialized Geriatric Services (SGS) is a network of specialty teams throughout Southwestern Ontario that specialize in the assessment, intervention, and management of older persons with functional decline, frailty, and complexities. Affiliated with the London Regional Geriatric Program, Bluewater Health’s SGS will be supporting inpatient consults and outpatient clinical services.

What We Do

Using a multidimensional approach the specialized geriatric team determines a frail older person’s healthcare needs, and puts in place an appropriate treatment and follow-up plan. The team balances evidence with prognosis and clinical outlook with patient and caregiver preference.

Team members

The Specialized Geriatrics Service team comprises a Geriatrician and Nurse Practitioner.
