Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Team

The GMHOT pairs up a geriatric psychiatrist and a mental health nurse who provide consultation, specialized assessments and follow-up services to older adults with complex behavioral problems who reside in long term care homes. The team also provides education to nursing home staff on seniors and mental health issues providing an understanding of why people with dementia and mental health issues behave act and respond to their lives in the way that they do. Our mental health nurse teaches long term care home staff communication techniques and approaches to a number of behavioral issues that arise in the care of a person with dementia. Our nurse did more than 1600 visits to seniors in nursing homes in the last fiscal year.
