Older Adults

Windmoor Healthcare’s Older Adult Inpatient Program treats psychiatric disorders common among the aging population. Our interdisciplinary healthcare team addresses these patients’ physical needs and emotional problems while being considerate to the feelings of the family during this difficult time.

This specialized program recognizes potential for behavioral change through education and treatment. We focus on the strengths of each patient to encourage him or her to attain the highest level of function possible. Physical safety and individual treatment are paramount. Family members and significant others are an integral part of care and are included in all areas of behavioral health treatment, including discharge planning.

The team considers the individual’s physical, emotional, social, and safety needs when recommending future care. After discharge, patients may take advantage of a wide variety of follow-up and outpatient psychiatric care programs offered by the hospital.
