Older Adult Services
By 2030, 36% of Belknap County and 31% of Grafton County residents will be over 65. Genesis Behavioral Health is committed to meeting the mental health needs of our older adults. Often, older adults struggle with the transitions and life changes they may be experiencing. They may show signs that they need help, such as confusion, behavior changes, memory loss or difficulty managing daily activities and maintaining independence.
Genesis Behavioral Health offers a variety of services tailored to the specialized needs of this population, including:
- Psychiatric Assessment
- Medication Services
- Referral, Education, Assistance & Prevention Program (REAP), a prevention program to help all older adults in our community live a happy, healthy and independent lifestyle.
Our medical staff also provides care to the Senior Psychiatric Unit at LRGHealthcare. This secure 10-bed unit is devoted to the psychiatric care of elders and offers a multidisciplinary team approach to care. For more information on this service, please call LRGHealthcare’s Information and Referral line at 603-527-7100.
