This program is designed for patients over the age of 65 who are registered to one of our Physicians, and are facing challenges in their home environment. We welcome referrals from the patients themselves, their family or caregivers. The Markham Family Health Teams Aging at Home Program team consists of a Program Administrator, Registered Nurse, Occupational Therapist, Clinical Pharmacist, and a focused-practice geriatric physician. The team’s focus is on assessment of the senior’s physical, emotional and mental health within the environment of his or her own home. From there, we work together with the patient and family to secure referrals to specialists, clinics, day programs, and personal care support as required. Support is also available for the caregivers or family. For more information about this program, please call 905-471-9999 ext 456 to speak with the Program Administrator, Ms. Carly Holmes, Carly.Holmes@markhamfht.com  or speak with your Markham Family Health Team health care provider.

The Aging at Home team is proud to present our Senior Wellness Series. This is a series of workshops that are open to the public and offered on a monthly basis at no charge. On the second Tuesday of the month we invite our older adult friends to join us for an educational session led by a clinician on a different topic with a focus on staying well- for a lifetime! We partnered with different organizations in the community in order to offer an array of topics including Senior Safety and Fraud Prevention, Mental Health and Well being, Footwear to prevent Falls, and many more. 
We welcome you to join in on any one of these sessions, for more details and to register please reach out to Carly Holmes at carly.holmes@markhamfht.com or 905-471-9999 ext 456
