Geriatric services are designed for adults 60 years or older. Treatment of psychiatric disorders in the older adult is complex, as multiple factors interact to affect health status. Our psychiatric, case management and treatment staff members are skilled in working through these factors and assisting older adults move forward in their recovery. Services are provided in a smaller and separate location within Community Hospital.
Treatment modalities are tailored to meet the individual’s needs. Services may include a combination of the following:
- Psychiatric evaluation
- Medication management
- Individual, group or family therapy
- Case management services
- Client/family education.
Anyone experiencing symptoms that cause distress or interfere with activities or responsibilities can be referred to a psychiatrist. Some insurance companies require you to use specific providers. Community Hospital and the County Office of Behavioral Health strive to make services available to everyone, but you may be required to utilize the providers that are designated by your insurance company. Depending upon your income, there may be a co-pay fee.
Duration of Services
Services are available to you as long as you and the treatment team feel you would benefit from continuing the service.
