Older Adult Program

Fremont Hospital offers a 16-bed licensed, geriatric focused psychiatry unit that serves the needs of older individuals with acute psychiatric illnesses. The facility provides multi-disciplinary services for voluntary and involuntary patients.

We provide psychiatric evaluation, stabilization and medication management for our patients, along with a full array of therapeutic programs and services. Our goal is to enable our patients to successfully function and return to their families and communities.

Fremont’s geriatric behavioral program includes:

  • A daily treatment schedule that provides therapeutic and purposeful activities to promote safety, stabilization, psychosocial and medical interventions that result in discharge to a less intensive level of care
  • Assistance with discharge planning, community resources, psycho-education, group therapy, and post discharge follow up, all provided by our licensed clinical social workers

Geriatric Behavioral Health Services are covered by Medicare and most private insurers. We will bill insurance for services and obtain prior authorization so there are no unanticipated costs or surprises.
