The Geriatric Psychiatry Program at McLaren Oakland services adults 55 years of age and older who have a psychiatric diagnosis and are 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 has also received a diagnosis of dementia or memory-impairment. By providing intensive care, 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.

Located in the east tower, the Geriatric Psychiatry unit has 27 beds and is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by a comprehensive clinical team comprised of Psychiatric and Internal Medicine Physicians, Psychologists, Registered Nurses, Social Workers and Recreational Therapists. If you would like additional information or would like to schedule an admission, please contact our intake department at (248) 338-5588.
