Geriatric Psychiatry Program
Comprehensive and compassionate care for older adults with mental illness
This eight-minute video introduces the staff of the geriatric psychiatry units at United and Unity hospitals in St. Paul and Fridley, Minnesota. It explains how they can work with each patient's family to care for mental health and physical problems at the same time, in the same place.
With the increase in our senior population comes the need to better understand how aging affects mental health. As one grows older, conditions like dementia, depression and stroke can disturb the ability to function or cope. As they struggle to comfort their loved one, family members often feel helpless.
