Inpatient

 

Inpatient Psychiatry

Wesley Woods Geriatric Hospital has two secure medical psychiatric units. Both are dedicated to providing psychiatric care for senior patients.

The geriatric psychiatry unit is a 22-bed, smoke-free environment designed for seniors with general psychiatric issues including depression and mild memory issues. An interdisciplinary team experienced in elderly psychiatric treatment collaborates to help return patients in the geriatric psychiatry unit to their best possible state of health.

Like the geriatric psychiatry unit, the neuropsychiatry unit contains 22 beds and is a smoke-free facility. The neuropsychiatry unit is designed to evaluate and treat seniors who experience memory and/or behavioral problems related to dementia or other cognitive impairments.

Outpatient

 

Transitions Senior Program

The Transitions Senior Program is an outpatient program for elderly adults (65 or older) who have emotional concerns that interfere with quality of life such as withdrawal, isolation, grief, depression and loneliness.

Seniors that are referred to the program have a complete psychosocial assessment to ensure that the program addresses their needs. Assessment includes discussion of current problems, observable changes in daily activities, medical/emotional problems and issues that might be of concern to the patient. Following the assessment, a personalized treatment plan and schedule is established.

The Transitions Program for seniors provides elders with day plan activities and therapies such as grief and anger management, cognitive therapy, problem solving, coping skills, leisure planning and relaxation, and relapse prevention. Lunch is provided daily to participants and transportation is available free of charge within a 25-mile radius of the Transitions Senior Program facility.
