ABOUT

Our Program

Our Program

While aging has many joys, it can also bring many challenges.  Decreased physical and mental capabilities, the loss of loved ones and reduced independence can mean significant changes in the lives of older adults.  Memory loss, and the behaviors that accompany it can be challenging for the person suffering as well as their loved ones.  Sometimes specialized care is needed - and Laurel Place is prepared to help with these challenges.

Our inpatient psychiatry unit provides evaluation and treatment for older adults, typically over 55 years of age, who are suffering from debilitating symptoms of depression and anxiety.  We offer holistic, comprehensive care to help patients deal with behavioral issues that occur during the aging process.  As part of our holistic program, we review prescription and over the counter medication to ensure maximum therapeutic effect for our patients.
