Who will provide my care?

The decision to place a loved one in geropsychiatric care is always difficult. Our health care team understands that difficulty, and we encourage family involvement in patient care. We provide caring, supportive psychiatric care in a safe and secure environment. Our treatment programs are designed to meet each individuals unique needs.

Treatment includes group therapy, medication management, activities, family education and support to help patients improve their social, physical and emotional functioning.

The treatment team includes:

Providers

Care is supervised by a medical director and provider who specialize in management of mental and behavioral symptoms. Patients can expect to see the psychiatrist daily.

Nursing Staff

Specialty trained registered nurses (RNs) partner with certified nursing assistants (CNAs) to provide care and ensure that treatment occurs in a safe and therapeutic environment. Nurses manage medications and assess patients for any side effects. They also help patients better understand their illness and medications.

Social Workers

Social workers provide group counseling and emotional support. The social worker has primary responsibility for discharge planning and assists patients and family in making decisions regarding discharge and after care plans.

Occupational Therapists

Occupational therapists provide assessment and a variety of therapeutic activities including reminiscence activities, cognitive stimulation, coping strategies, leisure education and exercise.

If you have a patient or loved one who you believe would benefit from this type of intensive care, or you would like more information on our services, please call our intake coordinator at 503-435-4544
