Quincy Medical Center’s behavioral health service program is dedicated to helping older adults by providing a full range of inpatient treatment options, as well as an outpatient Partial Hospital Program. Our comprehensive services focus on treating the individual to help them restore balance and a sense of well-being in their lives.
The general medical center setting also offers many other advantages toward a complete plan of care and makes it possible to address any medical problems that may accompany a patient’s mental health. The behavioral health staff also works closely with the hospital's Alzheimer's Disease Center and Cognitive Disorders Clinic. Our behavioral health services include:
Quincy Medical Center’s geriatric behavioral health unit provides psychiatric services to older adults, age 55 and over, that may suffer from depression, anxiety, and dementia-related problems, or have difficulty coping with the everyday stressors related to aging. Our expert team of mental health specialists treats every patient with the respect and dignity they deserve and helps each patient to improve their quality of life and family relationships.
The geriatric behavioral unit is a secure 22-bed inpatient acute psychiatric. Quincy’s program offers a comforting, structured environment, which includes psychiatric assessment, medical assessment and treatment, psychosocial assessment, neuropsychological testing, individual and family counseling, and group therapy.
Quincy Medical Center was one of the first providers of geriatric psychiatry services in Massachusetts and, in more than a decade, has cared for thousands of older adults.
The Partial Hospital Program at Quincy Medical Center is a short-term, day program that is designed to help older adults who are experiencing difficulty with common later-life issues. Participants attend three psychotherapeutic group sessions per day to learn new tools for improving health and well-being. In addition, participants meet individually with a psychiatrist to review medication issues and personal concerns, and a case manager to plan for ongoing treatment, as needed after discharge.
