Senior adults face more unique, medically complex problems specific to
their age group. Whether it's brought on by dementia, medications
or other chronic conditions, many older adults benefit from individual
and group sessions as well as medication adjustments, when appropriate.
The Geriatric Psychiatric Health team works together with families and
caregivers to assure the highest quality of care from admission to discharge.
The Geriatric Unit consists of 12 beds with specialized inpatient services
focusing on the unique needs faced by adults as they age. The program
provides goal oriented-intensive individualized care focusing on both
psychiatric and medical needs. Our interdisciplinary team works hand in
hand with families and caregivers to assure the highest quality of care
from admission to discharge. The average length of stay is 10 - 14 days.
