Aged psychiatry service

Epworth Clinic’s aged psychiatry service is dedicated to the care of people with mental health issues aged 65 and over. 


Our aged psychiatry team specialises in mental health conditions of old age and will provide you with comprehensive and compassionate care in the management of your mental illness, to optimise your daily functioning and quality of life.


Aged psychiatry team

The aged psychiatry team is led by your treating psychiatrist alongside a specialist geriatrician. The team is supported by nurses, psychologists, dietitians, physiotherapists, social workers and occupational therapists.

 

We are also able to draw from a range of other disciplines as clinically required, for example neuropsychologists and other medical specialists.


Inpatient care

For inpatients, Epworth Clinic’s aged psychiatry service provides single rooms with private ensuite facilities in a safe and caring environment for acutely unwell older patients. 


Day programs

Epworth Clinic provides a range of therapeutic programs for patients to participate in as an inpatient or a day patients. The Wellness Interaction Support Engagement (W.I.S.E) program is specifically designed for patients over 65 years of age.
