Senior Services Inpatient Care

Your care in the Laureate Senior Behavioral Health Unit is our top priority. Our admissions coordinator and assessment counselors are ready to help you begin the process.


Senior Services Admission Criteria

In most cases, an older adult qualifies for admission when they have a psychiatric diagnosis and are a:

  • danger to self or others
  • require complex management of their condition
  • cannot be safely managed in an outpatient setting
All admissions require a physician order.


The Admission Process

Upon admission to the unit, a registered nurse will meet with you to complete a comprehensive nursing assessment, including medical and psychiatric history and a physical exam.

For security reasons, your belongings are inventoried thoroughly. You'll tour your room and the unit. You'll also meet other patients and staff. Unit rules, visitation and program expectations will be discussed. Please review the patient handbook for more information.

In order to develop an individualized treatment plan, you will also be assessed by other members of our senior services team within 24 hours; including a psychiatrist, a therapist, an occupational therapist, a recreational therapist and other providers as needed.
