Seniors Assessment & Support Outreach Team (SASOT)

The Seniors Assessment and Support Outreach Team (SASOT) is located at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital Site in Bracebridge.  SASOT assesses and provides outreach support to people aged 65 and older who live in South Muskoka by assessing a senior's health and day-to-day function, and by linking and referring seniors to appropriate services where available.  Read more about the team's service in their brochure.

The interdisciplinary team includes social workers, nursing, occupational therapy, a medical advisor and clerical support. SASOT works collaboratively with other community partners such as family health teams, nurse practitioner clinics and Community Care Access Centres to ensure patients receive a seamless, integrated service.  Through their outreach work, SASOT is reducing emergency department visits, and helping seniors to avoid an unnecessary admission to the hospital. They also work to support the discharge of complex alternate level of care (ALC) patients in hospital.
