Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital provides outstanding care for adults aged 18 years and older. We also maintain a designated unit devoted specifically to caring for the geriatric population. As people grow older, their life experiences and changing perspectives can have a significant impact on their emotional and social well-being. The geriatric population has its own unique sensitivities, life issues, and mental health challenges that must be perceived and dealt with through the prism of that population's mindset. Some conditions may be compounded with co-occurring conditions which may mandate a very different course of treatment.
At Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital, we specialize in providing psychiatric care for the geriatric population.
Our geri-psych staff is especially sensitive to the needs and sensitivities of seniors, and our clinicians have the experience and expertise needed to provide effective, results-oriented treatment.
Significantly, Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital has the medical resources and personnel to effectively deal with the physical ailments and medical co-morbidity that can often complicate a senior patient's condition.
The dedicated unit offers clinical advantages, as the focus of staff as well as the age commonality of the patient body foster a greater sense of security and calmness. This is especially conducive in the treatment of geriatric patients, who respond well to a familiar, friendly setting.
Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital is accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC).
