Acute Geriatric Psychiatric Unit

Psychiatric patients requiring hospitalization often have medical problems as well. It’s a complicated situation that calls for extraordinary measures. Masonicare responds with a comforting environment designed to put these patients at ease. Our care environment is designed to resemble a lovely home or inn, rather than a hospital. Behind the scenes, a specially trained multi-disciplinary team works to evaluate mental and physical needs, coordinate care, and apply Masonicare’s vast array of resources.

What is the Geriatric Psychiatric & Mental Health Unit?

It’s a holistic approach led by psychiatrists trained in the evaluation and management of complex mental-health interventions. They’re supported by social workers, psychologists, nurses, and therapists, all dedicated to improving patient health. Consultation is readily available from neurologists, and medical and surgical specialists. If necessary, care from speech or physical therapists, audiologists, and dietitians also is available.

Whom we help:

Elderly patients, over the age of 55, with acute psychiatric and medical problems.

The Masonicare difference:

Few facilities are equipped to address the needs of elderly patients requiring medical and mental-health care. As a geriatric-care expert, Masonicare is practiced at addressing the complex needs of seriously ill patients. Our specially designed and staffed Geriatric Psychiatric & Mental Health Unit is dedicated to compassionate and comprehensive treatment for patients with multiple diagnoses.

Admissions:

If an older adult with a psychiatric disorder requires hospitalization, we urge you or the patient’s doctor to seek more information.

Geriatric psychiatric & mental health services are considered hospital admissions and are covered by Medicare. We also accept most major insurance.
