Each individual is assigned a highly specialized, compassionate treatment team. The treatment team works together towards the goal of helping your loved one stabilize so they can safely move to a less-intensive level of care. Our treatment teams are composed of:

  • Three board-certified geriatric psychiatrists

  • Unit manager—a nurse who is responsible for program development, milieu activities, and day-to-day function of the program.

  • Social worker—who is your primary contact and liaison. The social worker attends daily treatment team meetings, and will keep you informed about your loved one’s clinical progress. The social worker will also work with you to obtain a family history in order to get a holistic view of your loved one.

  • Music therapist—who works with individuals to help them safely express thoughts and feelings, foster coping skills, learn how to problem solve, and engage in impulse control. Music therapy sessions occur most days, and can include karaoke and drumming groups.

  • Occupational therapist—who facilitates activities to help individuals learn how to meet their physical, emotional, and cognitive needs. Occupational therapists help people improve interpersonal and social skills, cognition and thought, and even sensory functions.

  • Psychiatric nurses—who help individuals with their daily activities, managing their symptoms, and any medical concerns. Psychiatric nurses are also responsible for dispensing medication.

  • Mental health workers—who are trained staff members that help run therapeutic groups and work directly with the clinical treatment team.
