Our Geriatric Transition Program helps adults with challenging behaviors transition from a hospital to a long term care facility that meets their needs. Our team supports successful community placements and aims to prevent hospital readmission.
Our Masters Level Geriatric Consultants work with adults to create a plan based on a detailed assessment that helps both the individual and the facility.
This program is for adults with serious mental illness, dementia, mood disorder or other neurological disorders. Eligible adults also have challenging behaviors which are a barrier to hospital discharge OR their long term care facility placement is at risk due to challenging behaviors.
The Geriatrics Transition Team is multi-faceted team led by a Licensed, Clinical Social Worker and Geriatric Specialist. The program has an in-house Geropsych ARNP offering consultation and prescribing services when needed.
