Senior Care

The Senior Care Unit at AGH offers individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere.  The Unit is designed to meet the needs of adults 55 and older, suffering from behavioral health issues, persistent personality changes, or unusual behaviors.

Older Adults can become overwhelmed as they experience the loss of loved ones, their independence, and the stresses that go along with losing physical and mental abilities.  This can lead to depression, confusion, mood swings or other behavioral changes.

Our team of caring clinicians understand the challenges of aging and will develop individualized care plans that best meets the needs of the patient.  Care plans will include evaluation and treatment with the appropriate physician, nursing and social worker evaluations, along with therapy, enriching activities and family support.

Prior to discharge, our staff will create an individualized discharge care plan, based on the patient’s functional and cognitive abilities, a safety assessment and a safety plan.  The purpose of the safety plan is to ensure each patient has the support needed to complete day-to-day tasks and successfully sustain themselves upon returning home.  We will identify areas where the patient needs additional support such as taking medication or preparing food.

Admissions are accepted 24 hours a day.
