Senior Friendly Care

The goal of senior friendly care is to achieve the best possible health outcomes for older adults (RGP of Toronto, 2017). A Senior Friendly Hospital is a healthcare facility designed to meet the unique needs of older adults. It emphasizes a holistic approach to care that includes physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. Senior Friendly Hospitals are equipped with features and practices that promote safety, comfort, and dignity for elderly patients.

Senior Friendly 7 focuses on seven clinical areas that support resilience, independence, and quality of life. The resources below include clinical best practice guidelines, assessments, informational resources and education modules for health care providers, older adults and their care partners across seven sectors of care.
