Organization Objective

The core mission of Donald Berman Maimonides Geriatric Centre, a McGill University affiliated long-term care facility, is to provide service to aging members of the community who are no longer able to function independently. They are entrusted to our care by their families, with whom we are allied in values and purpose. We provide a continuum of high-quality care through our integrated network, which includes the Helen and Sam Steinberg Day Hospital, short-term respite care, community-based homes and a variety of long-term care accommodations. In line with our mission, the Centre serves as a training ground for professionals and conducts research into issues related to geriatric medicine and care of the elderly. The Centre’s staff has created a vibrant and innovative environment that focuses on the highest standards of care. Maimonides’ programs have been repeatedly recognized for their excellence.
