Masonicare Behavioral Health Hospital

Mental Health Services & Support for Seniors

Aging brings unique challenges. Declines in physical and cognitive functioning, the loss of a family member and decreased independence may trigger new mental health challenges—or exacerbate underlying ones. The dedicated team at Masonicare’s Geriatric Psychiatric Hospital provides care for individuals experiencing acute mental health and behavioral issues later in life.

Patients are typically ages 65 and older and are experiencing acute psychiatric symptoms or behaviors that interfere with care at home or in a skilled nursing facility.

Diagnoses and symptoms that are treated at Masonicare include:

  • Dementia accompanied by behavioral disturbances
  • Major depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Suicidal ideation

Prompt Admission Process

Eliminate lengthy emergency room waits. Patients quickly enter the unit’s private and supportive atmosphere. Treatment starts immediately, with a comprehensive clinical evaluation—this includes identifying behaviors assessed for underlying medical or chemical origins. Once acute symptoms have stabilized, behavioral interventions, medications and therapeutic activities are integrated into the patient’s plan of care. The average length of stay is 10 to 14 days.

Success and Support After Discharge

As an individual progresses toward an optimal level of functioning, the behavioral health treatment team works closely with family, significant friends and outside providers to develop a personalized program. Masonicare strives to assure gains made during hospitalization are maintained after discharge, and collaboration with a patient’s community physician plays a key role for positive outcomes.
