Welcome to Jeffery Hale's
Specialized Geriatric Consultations

Let Jeffery Hale help you stay independent in your own home. Our Specialized Geriatric Consultations program (formerly called the Day Hospital) provides medical, nursing and rehabilitation services on an outpatient basis.

Specialized Geriatric Consultations are for people 65 and older who have a loss of independence due to certain physical or psychological health problems, and who need medical care, nursing care and rehabilitation. Clients visit the Specialized Geriatric Consultations program one to three times per week, depending on their care plan.

Specialized Geriatric Consultations are provided by our consultation team specializing in geriatrics and psychogeriatics, which is made up of the following professionals:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Occupational Therapists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Rehabilitation Therapists
  • Nutritionists
