Why geriatric behavioral health?

Geriatric psychiatry and behavioral health providers are dedicated to the diagnosis and management of mental health disorders in older adults. The goal of treatment is to help older persons and their families maintain well-being, overcome challenges, and achieve maximum potential during later life.  

Older adults are a diverse population. Some older adults may be living with psychiatric disorders that began earlier in life, while others may be experiencing mental health concerns for the first time.

 

Geriatric psychiatry and behavioral health providers are trained to manage diagnoses that are often not encountered with younger clients and know how to prescribe medication safely in the older adult population. 

Conditions we treat include:

  • Dementia and Dementia- related behavioral concerns

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Bipolar Disorders

  • Schizophrenia

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

  • PTSD

  • Sleep Disorders
