Abstract

Care of the elderly is perhaps one of the more acute areas of need in the health service in the United Kingdom. By comparison, Canada does not have such a high proportion of elderly people, but John Watson found a more positive approach to "keeping people at their highest level of function" during a visit to the Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care in Toronto. He found that the centre, which was set up in the last ten to 20 years, has some facilities which are not generally offered in this country.
