Psychogeriatric Case Management
The Canadian Mental Health Association – York Region and South Simcoe (CMHA-YRSS) and LOFT’s Integrated Psychogeriatric Outreach Program (IPOP) have a partnership that allows IPOP to identify clients that require Psychogeriatric Case Management support from CMHA-YRSS’ Seniors Case Management program.
IPOP provides a multi-disciplinary team of community clinicians that support older adults who are experiencing a new or functional decline related to mental health or cognitive changes. Through a comprehensive psychogeriatric assessment and access to a consultative appointment with Geriatric Psychiatry, individuals can be identified as requiring a need for ongoing support for up to six months from CMHA-YRSS.
CMHA-YRSS’ Seniors Case Management supports the senior population in reducing barriers such as those related to primary health care, housing and/or income concerns, as well as increasing engagement in their local communities to foster independence, improve quality of life and reduce experiences of social isolation.
