Senior Psychiatric Care
Our Senior Care Unit is a 22-bed unit where elderly adults can receive treatment for a wide range of psychiatric conditions. Patients experiencing depression, anxiety, dementia, Alzheimer’s and other advancing organic syndromes can be treated on site within this unit. Most important is our approach to assessing and managing the medications of the patient that could be the source of psychiatric disorders. The following symptoms may indicate an issue that needs attention: Loss of appetite, disorientation, depression, hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, sleep disturbance, increased social withdrawal, feelings of suspicion and mistrust, and severe memory loss.
