The Geriatric Assessment and Intervention Network (GAIN) Clinic is a network of coordinated health care services that provide clinical care and education. A team of health care professionals work collaboratively with patients and families where health concerns may threaten a persons ability to live independently.

GAIN is a collaboration between 12 health care providers, including the Central EastCommunity Care Access Centre(CE CCAC) and the Central EastLocal Health Integration Network(CE LHIN).

Senior Persons Living Connected partners closely with The Scarborough Hospital, Rouge Valley Health System, and Carefirst Seniors & Community Association located in Scarborough, Ontario.

Our team consists of:

Our team speaks English, Italian, French, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Arabic,Punjabi, Urdu,Tagalog, Filipinoand Tamil to assist with communication if necessary.

Our team will carry out a geriatric assessment, which is an appointment where illnesses are identified and treated. The GAIN team will also look at other areas that may affect a seniors life, such as self-care, brain function, physical ability,education and support for caregivers.

Under the 'fair use' rule of copyright law, an author may make limited use of another author's work without asking permission. Fair use is based on the belief that the public is entitled to freely use portions of copyrighted materials for purposes of commentary and criticism. The fair use privilege is perhaps the most significant limitation on a copyright owner's exclusive rights.

Fair use as described at 17 U.S.C. Section 107:

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
