Inpatient Services

We accept adults and older adults meeting admissions criteria seven days a week, 365 days a year, upon completion of a referral. Patients in this age group can be self, family/legal guardian, emergency room, or doctor/therapist referred, but must be medically cleared prior to admission. To discuss or refer inpatient admissions to our Towson campus, please call 410-938-3800.

Our geriatric inpatient psychiatric services provide intense therapeutic assessment, intervention, and treatment to those older adults experiencing depression, anxiety, severe forgetfulness, and other mental health issues requiring 24-hour monitoring. Inpatient treatment is the most intensive level of care, and is meant for those patients whose mental condition requires admission to a hospital, where they can be monitored at all times. The majority of our inpatients on our geriatric units are adults over 65 years of age; however, we do admit adults younger than 65 depending on the severity of their dementing illness.

Every Wednesday evening our Service Chief and Unit Manager host weekly Question & Answer sessions on the unit as a way to provide family members and caretakers of current patients an opportunity to ask questions, discuss their loved ones case, and determine next steps in terms of treatment and discharge.

Geriatric inpatient services are only available on our Towson campus and include:
