Psychiatry & Behavioral Medicine

Geriatric Programs

Growing older brings a variety of stressors, including concerns associated with physical illness, hormonal/chemical changes and, more often than you may realize, depression.

Carilion Clinic believes that our elderly community members deserve compassionate care from understanding professionals. Our established, specialized psychiatry team is here to help.

Our staff is specially trained to address the unique issues of aging and illness in people over age 65. Their expertise helps promote both mental and physical health in our older patients.

We offer inpatient and outpatient programs at our Roanoke and New River Valley hospitals. At Carilion Clinic Saint Albans Hospital, we've created specially designed geriatric patient rooms, each set up to make the hospital stay easier and more comfortable for older patients.
