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.
