Horizon Program for Geriatric Psychiatry

Horizon Program for Geriatric Psychiatry

The Horizon Program for Geriatric Psychiatry serves patients 65 or over with signs and symptoms of a psychiatric disorder, as well as persons under 65 with Alzheimer's or other dementing illnesses.  

The program endeavours to provide a safe and secure environment for our patients. The unit features a large day room, a large secured patio area, a dining room and rooms available for therapy, activities and visiting.

Visiting a patient
For the most up to date information on visitor restrictions, please see Visiting a patient

Visitors are asked to contact the program/social worker prior to visiting. On some occasions, patients may refuse to meet with visitors, even though they may have travelled a considerable distance. When this occurs, we respect the decision of the patient and we will provide support where appropriate. Waypoint may also restrict visiting hours for clinical or security reasons
