Geriatric psychiatry is designed to address the specific difficulties faced by older adults, including higher incidences of depression, isolation and dependence on other family members. At Atlantic Behavioral Health, we provide services to improve the health and restore the quality of life of geriatric patients.
Our staff of psychiatrists, nurses and social workers can evaluate older adults to determine if they are suffering from psychosis, depression, geriatric dementia, anxiety, delirium and other cognitive conditions or mood disturbances. Family members are invited to join the evaluations to determine if the patient is at risk for injury as a result of their immediate surroundings.
Inpatient geriatric psychiatry services are available at Morristown Medical Center, Newton Medical Center and Overlook Medical Center.
