The Regional Geriatric Program of Eastern Ontario (RGPEO) is a coordinated network that includes a broad range of specialized geriatric services, from hospital to home. It was established in 1985 as Ontario’s first specialized health services network for seniors.

Falls are multi-factorial

Elderly patients who have fallen should undergo a thorough evaluation.

Determining and treating the underlying cause of a fall can return patients to baseline function and reduce the risk of recurrent falls.
