At Moses Taylor Hospital, our goal is to keep you healthy and well throughout all the years of your life. If you are an elder patient, or caregiver to an elder patient, you know that the aging process can bring on its own unique challenges. The staff at Moses Taylor is sensitive to your special needs and will work to keep you comfortable during your procedures, and informed when you are ready to go home.
Moses Taylor Hospital’s Senior Medical Mental Health Program is designed for older adults experiencing psychiatric symptoms, and requiring 24-hour inpatient care. Inpatient symptoms can include the inability to function due to depression, confusion, severe anxiety or behavioral problems associated with dementia.
Patients can be referred to Senior Medical Mental Health by their physician, or a family member can contact us directly. Our professional staff will perform an assessment to determine if the patient meets admission criteria. Family members are encouraged to play an active role in the treatment plan, and family education and therapies are an integral part of this program. Because the program environment is designed exclusively for older adults, patients are able to obtain a level of comfort and familiarity, which encourages the healing process.
