Geriatric Neuropsychiatry Unit

At the Geriatric Neuropsychiatry Unit, we offer an array of services for adults ages 50 and older with depression, anxiety and cognitive function disorders.

With an average length of stay of between five and 12 days, our staff have special expertise in treating Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of dementia and we understand that along with cognitive changes, many individuals experience depression, anxiety or behavioral disturbances, such as agitation.

We use an intensive multidisciplinary approach that integrates behavioral interventions, therapeutic milieu, psychopharmacology and other somatic approaches to stabilize patients rapidly and implement treatment plans that maximize cognitive and emotional functioning in patients and thus enhance their quality of life.

 

"My sincere appreciation for all your support, empathy, and encouragement for my mother and me during this difficult and sad time. Your kindness, warmth and caring will always be remembered."
