Treatment on the Geropsychiatric Unit
During your loved one’s stay on the Geriatric Unit, they will receive a wide variety of treatments aimed at helping them get through their current crisis. We utilize various treatment modalities in our extensive, highly regimented programming. Individuals can expect to receive:
- Daily medication management and meetings with a psychiatrist
- Medication education
- Occupational therapy
- Art and music therapy
- Physical therapy
- Family therapy and education
- Illness education
In addition to experiencing a mental illness, many of those we care for also experience physical illnesses. We have a strong relationship with the experts at the neighboring Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC); our team collaborates with a general practitioner who visits the unit frequently to consult on our patients' medical needs. We also have the capability to easily refer an individual to a medical hospital if they need more intensive physical care.
We are also able to offer testing for dementia and have a neuropsychologist on-call.
