Geriatric psychiatry services
The Geriatric Psychiatry Ambulatory Center
Staffed by a multidisciplinary behavioral health team with specialized gerontological expertise. Patient populations include several elders with late-life depression, psychotic disorders, Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementing condition with concomitant serious behavioral disturbances such as agitation, aggression, paranoia, and mood abnormalities, and medical/neurological illnesses with psychiatric symptom expression. The units have been developed with unique geriatric-related accouterments that facilitate optimal care, including selected private rooms.
