Loneliness, grief, illness, unresolved and changing family dynamics, death and dying are just a handful of the many challenges seniors face during the aging process. In the role of caretaker, these problems become your problems too.
Here is how we offer help:
Free Initial Assessment: A mental health professional will conduct a free initial assessment to determine an individual’s need for treatment.
Diagnosis: Our healthcare team will provide a comprehensive evaluation of the patient’s physical and mental condition to form the basis for diagnosis and treatment planning.
Referral and Follow Up: Our staff offers resources and referral if we determine our program is not appropriate for you or your loved one. Each patient admitted and treated in our Geriatric Behavioral Health Care Unit will receive follow-up care to monitor any situation that might be cause for concern.
The Geriatric Behavioral Health Care Unit
The Geriatric Behavioral Health Care unit is a short-term inpatient holistic program designed to restore quality and dignity to the life of seniors in need. The 12-bed unit is created to diagnose and treat the behavioral problems of those patients 65 and older. The service is Medicare-certified.
Involvement of the patient’s family is viewed as critical to the diagnosis and treatment.
