Ontario Shores Announces New Geriatric Transitional Unit

We are please to announce that Ontario Shores has officially opened our new 20-bed inpatient unit. The new Geriatric Transitional Unit (GTU) provides specialized services for older adults with dementia, presenting with complex behaviours, who are currently in an acute care hospital and require specialized mental health care treatment to support their return to the community.

The unit will help the local health system to respond to capacity pressures experienced in acute care hospitals when patients with challenging behaviours no longer require acute care but are not able to transition to an alternate setting such as a long-term care home.
