Care of the Elderly
The H.F.P.C. physicians and residents are very involved in the care of the elderly, both in the clinic and on the hospital wards. We work closely with the Geriatric Division of the hospital, several nursing homes, and contribute to Home Care programs co-ordinated by the Province of Quebec's CLSC's (Centres Locaux de Services Communautaires). Residents will be assigned elderly patients for whom they will provide home care throughout their residency-training period.
