NEW! Older Adult Behavioral Health Unit in Elk Grove Village
Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health is pleased to announce the opening of our new Older Adult Behavioral Health Unit on 5-W at Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village.
This new unit provides acute inpatient psychiatric care and accommodates the physical and psychological needs to the older adult with medical co-morbidities. Therapeutic interventions focus on re-orientation to time, place and person, mood stabilization, social interaction, behavior management, education, family support and ultimately a return to the community.
Our staff is experienced in both psychiatric and medical care with an emphasis on geriatric psychiatry. With a capacity of 25 beds, we offer access to medical specialties including social work, geriatric primary care, and neurosciences. Our biopsychosocial model of care provides extensive longer term treatment planning and active involvement of families and caregivers.
