Provides psychiatric assessment, treatment, behavior stabilization and ongoing clinical support using a person-centered approach for patients with age related neurocognitive impairments (i.e. dementia).
This program provides mental health treatment and balance for individuals over 65 years of age who have age-related mental health disorders or behaviours.
The program is designed to meet the needs of patients in a structured environment while achieving stabilization and treatment. We treat individuals who have behaviors that cannot be managed in traditional care settings. The program’s mandate is to stabilize these behaviors so that the individual can reside in traditional care settings.
Access to these services are generally through a hospital setting or a health care professional.
If you are not sure what service would meet your or your loved one’s needs, contact your local mental health and substance use centre.
