 Seniors’ Mental Health Unit

The Seniors Mental Health Unit is a 10-bed inpatient unit which serves Seniors 65 years and older with acute and complex mental health, addiction and behavioral issues associated with indicators of frailty.

This specialized unit is led by a geriatric psychiatrist and staffed by an interdisciplinary team consisting of nurses, social workers, occupational therapist, recreation therapist and personal support workers.

The goal of the unit is to manage behaviours associated with a mental illness by providing assessments and treatments, so that the patient can return to their community or long-term care facility. Prior to discharge, the team assists in the coordination of community supports to ensure the patients has a smooth transition back to their home.
