Inpatient psychiatric and behavioral care for seniors is a special service we are honored to offer at Carolina Dunes Behavioral Health.

Also known as geriatric psychiatric care, our 20-bed senior adult inpatient program is designed to support aging adults, 50+ years old, who are experiencing mental health and/or behavioral issues that require 24-hour hospitalization.

The goal of our inpatient psychiatric care program for seniors is to address and manage their mental health and/or behavioral issues and improve their overall quality of life. This may involve a variety of treatment modalities, including medication management, individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy.
