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.
