Seniors' Services

Seniors' Care

We want to make it easier for seniors to get the health services they need – both at the hospital and in the community. That’s why Osler partners with the Central West LHIN, the Regional Geriatric Program of Toronto, local nursing homes, community agencies and family physicians to provide care and support services for seniors.  Together we can do so much more.

We are proud to carry the NICHE designation as a sign of our resolve to provide care targeted at older adults. NICHE (Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders) is the only national designation indicating a hospital's commitment to elder care excellence.

Through our participation in the NICHE program - the largest geriatric nursing program  in North America - we are able to offer care that is informed and tested by a large network of hospitals.
