The goal of the NFHT Seniors Assessment Clinic is to help seniors and their families, living in our community, to live safely and independently in their own homes and to participate in activities that are important to them.
When you are referred to the program, you will meet with the Occupational Therapist to review your health concerns and any challenges you are having in your day-to-day activities. Topics addressed may include; home safety equipment; falls prevention; memory screening; nutrition, anxiety and depression screening, medication changes, family and caregiver support; and linkages with other community resources or NFHT team members.
