Geriatric Psychiatry

Geriatric Psychiatry

Changes in a senior’s behavior or mood should not be ignored or viewed as a natural consequence of aging. We diagnose and treat these behavioral health problems with plans that are tailored to each patient’s needs.

Helping patients regain a healthy lifestyle

The Center for Geriatric Psychiatry offers hope to those age 65 years and older who are experiencing serious emotional difficulties.

After an admission assessment and individualized treatment planning, our inpatient services focus on relieving symptoms and helping patients develop skills to increase their independence and mobility. We help them identify their capabilities, accept their limitations and develop an appropriate medication plan.

Our staff includes psychiatrists, physicians, nurses, social workers and therapists.

A broad spectrum of services

Located within the Continuing Care Campus* in Concord Township, the center treats a variety of medical problems in conjunction with a primary psychiatric diagnosis. Our services include:

  • Admission assessments
  • Co-management of chronic medical conditions
  • Medication adjustments
  • Individual and group counseling
  • Occupational and physical therapy
  • Dietary consultation
  • Patient and family education
  • Discharge planning/placement assessment

We accept admissions 24 hours a day

Our staff is available 24/7 and all information is strictly confidential. Referrals may be made by physicians, psychologists, social workers, mental health professionals, social service agencies, family members or friends. A psychiatrist then makes the decision regarding admission. For information, call 440-918-6366.

When it’s time to go home

The patient and family work with the treatment team to develop an appropriate aftercare plan. Aftercare might include a community-based program or outpatient therapy. Our goal is to help maintain the progress that was made during the patient’s stay with us.
