Geropsychiatric Specialty Care

Through this program, our skilled staff members quickly and professionally meet the needs of senior adults who require acute, short-term inpatient assessment and treatment.

The decision to place a loved one in geropsychiatric care is always difficult. Our health care team understands that difficulty, and we encourage family involvement in patient care. We strongly believe that a supportive, family-oriented environment is one of the first steps to successful treatment.

We accept voluntary and involuntary commitments.

Our geropsychiatric program includes:

  • Psychiatric and physical assessments
  • Medication management and adjustment
  • Educational groups, including assertiveness, self-esteem, co-dependency, discharge planning, grief/loss, stress management, anger management and group therapy
  • Spirituality groups
  • Social work
  • Reality orientation
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Activities of daily living
  • Pharmacist involvement
  • Recreational therapy
  • Occupational therapy

Depending on the patient’s level of function, he or she may also participate in animal-assisted therapy, exercise/aquatic therapy and community re-entry.
