Ontario Connecting Seniors to Specialized Care and Support

The government is investing more than $4.1 million over two years to expand GeriMedRisk, a program that makes it easier and faster for seniors living with complex medical needs to access coordinated care, in their community.

Based out of the Grand River Hospital in Kitchener, our government expanded GeriMedRisk to be a province-wide service in 2019 to help seniors in every corner of the province benefit from the service. With today’s additional funding, up to 21 additional geriatric specialists and pharmacists will be hired to provide more than 1,000 additional consults annually, helping primary care providers improve their patients’ health and quality of life.
