The Early Cognitive Change Clinic for Older Adults is a specialty clinic for assessment and assistance with age-related, mild cognitive impairment, and is offered at the St. Boniface Hospital. Consultations regarding difficulties with sleep or pain are also available. Those services are available on an outpatient basis. Personal Care Home consultations are also provided.
