Senior Behavioral Health
Geriatric Psychiatry Program at McLaren Bay Region and McLaren Oakland

There are many factors that can affect the physical, mental and emotional well-being of an older adult. McLaren created our senior behavioral health units to address the special needs of seniors who are experiencing emotional and behavioral changes. The units provides a safe, secure environment essential to successful inpatient psychiatric treatment.

The senior behavioral health units at McLaren services adults 55 years of age and older who have a psychiatric diagnosis and in need of stabilization in an acute care setting. Our program is designed to meet the unique needs of elderly patients, including those who, in addition to a psychiatric diagnosis have also received a diagnosis of dementia or memory-impairment.

Caring Geriatric Medical Team of Professionals Our multi-disciplinary team establishes a structured, supportive and safe environment where patients learn to identify problem areas and develop solutions. Combined with education and therapy, patients build skills for improved mental health and quality community living. Our team includes:

  • Psychiatrists
  • Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
  • Registered Psychiatric Nurses
  • Certified Nursing Assistants
  • Internal Medicine Physicians
  • Licensed Social Workers
  • Recreational Therapists
  • Psychologist
  • PCA's

Cost and Insurance Our services are covered in whole or part by most major insurance plans and Medicare. Since plans vary in coverage, family members and individuals are encouraged to discuss details with our staff and the hospital’s financial services.
