The Geriatric Cognitive Behavior Unit is an inpatient program for people 65 years of age and older who require a secure inpatient unit focusing on interdisciplinary assessment, intervention and rehabilitation.
This inpatient program offers assessment and treatment for the medically complex elderly with cognitive impairment (problems with thinking, problems with behaviour and mental symptoms relating to dementia) and disruptive behaviors or symptoms that are responsive to pharmacologic, environmental or behavioiural treatment.
The goal of this program is to help a person maintain or regain the ability to do their everyday activities through interdisciplinary assessment and treatment plans. Clients are usually in the program a minimum of 35-40 days. This program is closely linked with other Glenrose Geriatric Rehabilitation and Psychiatry programs.
