IN NEED OF PSYCHIATRIC HELP FOR A GERIATRIC PATIENT?

water dropAmong the most difficult medical issues to handle for an elderly patient or family member are serious psychiatric issues.  In our 70’s and 80’s (and beyond), severe psychiatric problems such as depression, anxiety can be combined with other underlying conditions such as memory loss to make their treatment and recovery more difficult.
For outpatient treatment, the following psychiatrists are particularly skilled:
Emerson B. Bueno MD
Emerson B. Bueno, M.D., PLC

Phoenix AZ 85032
Phone: (602) 404-7980(602) 404-7980

If the issues go beyond outpatient therapy, then perhaps an inpatient unit is needed.  St. Joe’s Hospital has an excellent geriatric-psych unit, or Senior Havens is another consideration.  Their links are below:
