Dr Kilpatrick is a Family Physician with a Diploma in Care of the Elderly who practices Primary Care and Preventative/Lifestyle Medicine for adult patients through the Health for Life Medical Centre in Kingston Ontario. She is also a LTC physician and Medical Director at Fairmount Home in Glenburnie.
She holds a Queen’s University academic appointment as Assistant Professor, Adjunct 1 in Family Medicine and teaches about Exercise in the Elderly to the Medical Students and Residents in their Geriatrics rotation.
Dr. Kilpatrick does her best to practice and role-model healthy behaviours including work-life balance, but finds it a challenge, as do all physicians, in our current health care environment. She finds benefit in nature therapy through visits to the cottage, reading, exercise, mindfulness and plant-based cooking with her husband.
At the Fairmount Home, Dr. Kilpatrick sees a typical LTC population.
Health for Life Medical Centre, Dr. Kilpatrick cares for adults over age 40 who are looking for a multi-disciplinary, team-based lifestyle medicine approach to preventative health.
