Older Adult Inpatient Services

Offering short term inpatient services to patients 55 and older, the Older Adult Psychiatric Unit is located on the second floor of the beautiful TMC Lakewood campus. The unit offers a secure inpatient treatment environment with 16 beds where patients receive treatment for anxiety, late-life depression, bipolar disorder, delirium, dementia, psychosis and other psychiatric disorders. Treatment starts with a comprehensive assessment of the whole person and involves family when appropriate.

Here older adults with behavioral health needs are treated with a holistic approach that promotes wellness, provides preventative care, focuses on quality of life and recognizes the individual. Led by a neuropsychologist, the multidisciplinary treatment team includes an internal medicine physician, nursing staff, occupational, speech and physical therapists, music, art and recreational therapists, psychologists, social workers and counselors, a nutritionist, a chaplain and a consultant pharmacist.

While being treated on the unit, patients receive medication management, psychotherapy and neuropsychological evaluation when necessary. Patients also may participate in multidisciplinary groups which include a daily wellness group, recreation therapy and music therapy as well as time for individual leisure activities. The Namaste Care Room provides a comfortable environment where patients participate in sensory focused activities such as music, lighting, massage and aromatherapy.
