Senior Friendly Care in Toronto Central LHIN Hospital

Prepared for the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network by the Regional Geriatric Program of Toronto The background document, survey and summary report were commissioned by the Toronto Central LHIN to support its Integrated Health Service Plan 2010-2013 priorities, including a commitment to reduce the risk of functional decline for seniors while in acute care.

The documents describes the case for change and introduces a Senior Friendly Hospital Framework. The goal is to inform senior leaders in hospitals on how to modify the way care is organised and provided to older patients. Additionally, it is intended to emphasize the multiple dimensions of organizational change essential to achieve improved health outcomes for seniors. The Toronto Central LHIN will be stewards and leaders in this systemic alignment of needs and resources by supporting partner hospitals in adopting the Senior Friendly Hospital Framework and integrating measurable objectives into the hospital service accountability agreements.
