Geriatric Psychiatry Program
NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital's 25-bed geriatric psychiatry unit, one of the first of its kind, is an asset in Brooklyn's psychiatric community and a model of specialized care. This unit is designed and furnished to meet the unique needs for comfort and safety required by elderly patients. A variety of special programs bring music, art, cooking, dancing, pet therapy and other lively and stimulating activities to the unit on a regular basis.
Individual supportive outpatient psychotherapy by psychotherapists and psychiatrists who specialize in the treatment of geriatric patients is also available in both private office settings and through the Hospital's Mental Health Clinic.
