COVID-19 Update

Please plan to attend your appointment, procedure or surgery as scheduled unless you are otherwise notified. During the pandemic, the hospital may be required to prioritize emergency and urgent cases, which may result in a change to your appointment. If this is the case, you will be contacted by a member of your care team. As always, our goal is to continue serving our community by providing quality hospital services for as long as it is safe and appropriate to do so during the pandemic.

What this program does...

Seniors are the fastest growing faction of the population in need of health care services in Ontario. In order to meet the growing challenge of our aging population, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton has identified senior care services as a key priority. We are committed to enhancing our seniors’ programs with particular emphasis placed on education programs and research. 

How this program helps...

With a senior-focused mindset we are dedicated to strengthening the care of older adults by providing senior care in an environment that optimizes wellness. We recognize that improving the effectiveness of continuum of care transitions, as well as providing programs that optimize and help maintain cognitive function are essential to sustaining seniors’ health and quality of life.

Dedicating our efforts to enhancing the programs offered to seniors provides our older patients with the vital transitional services they require to maintain optimum health and improve their capacity to live independently for as long as possible.
