Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Services

Admission

The Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Services are suitable for adults ages 50 and older with emotional, cognitive, or behavioral symptoms. These may include memory loss, mood disturbances, anxiety, difficulty coping with losses and transitions, or behavioral conditions that interfere with care at home or in a long-term care setting. Our programs are covered by most insurance providers and are appropriate for those who could benefit from short-term inpatient care.

To be eligible for admission to the Cognitive Neuropsychiatry Program, patients must require an inpatient level of care for behavioral problems (e.g., physically or verbally aggressive behavior, agitation, wandering, depression, or anxiety) related to cognitive impairment.
