Philosophy of Care

We focus on crisis stabilization; our goal is to move individuals to a less-intensive level of care as soon as it is safe to do so. 

We provide short-term crisis stabilization and work to identify what led to a hospitalization. We know this can be a scary time, and for many, this is their first hospitalization due to a dementing illness. Our experts are here to serve as a source of guidance and comfort.

Who We Serve

Our caring and compassionate team has expertise in treating older adults with mid- to late-stage dementia. Individuals generally come to our unit for care when their behavior has become problematic at home or in a nursing facility.
