The Center for Geriatric Psychiatry offers hope to those age 65 years and older who are experiencing serious emotional challenges. Changes in a senior’s behavior or mood should not be ignored or seen as a natural part of aging. We diagnose and treat these behavioral health problems with plans that are tailored to each patient’s needs.
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 a medication plan.
