Geriatric Rehabilitation & Assessment Program
On Geriatric Assessment and Rehabilitation inpatient units, many patients are admitted post hip fracture, knee surgery, post CVA, others deconditioned from acute care medical/ surgical issues, and long stays in acute care facilities. Clients are admitted from the community on the recommendation of the Geriatric Program Assessment Team (GPAT). The goal is to help patients return safely to the community.
