Comprehensive assessment is the standard of practice that defines specialized geriatric care. This population is defined by complex presentation and frailty often of multifactorial etiology and frequent unrecognized needs requiring identification for which comprehensive assessment and intervention is ideal and necessary.

This site is an online resource providing access to valuable information and a forum for discussion for those health care workers interested in providing better care for the elderly through the use of assessment tools and other resources. In particular it is designed to provide a resource for The GAIN Network and geriatric care providers in The Central East LHIN in Ontario.
