Geriatric Psychiatry

Medical West Geriatric Psychiatric Services provides quality care for geriatric patients suffering from various psychiatric symptoms and disorders. Our goal is to help patients return to their optimum level  of functioning. We strive to reach these goals by reducing troublesome behavior, returning patients to a stable sleep pattern, and helping patients control and take their medication. Our patients may be admitted to the Geri-Psych Unit through their primary care physician for a referral or through a nursing home/ assisted living referral.

Our services include:

  • Specialized Psychiatric & Medical Care
  • One on One Therapy
  • Group Therapy
  • Spiritual Therapy provided by Medical West Chaplains
  • Family Counseling

Visiting Hours:

Family Visitation is from 1-2 p.m. and 5-6 p.m. daily, however, other arrangements may be made with nurses based on the situation. A private family room is available for families while they visit their loved ones.
