At Tomball Regional Medical Center, our Senior Care Behavioral Unit was designed specifically for older adults who are experiencing mental, emotional or behavioral problems. All treatments and interactions are age-appropriate for senior psychiatry.
Board-certified psychiatrists, with the support of qualified therapists and other mental health professionals, staff our unit. As a hospital-based program, we accept patients with a psychiatric diagnosis accompanied with chronic medical conditions.
We believe a patient's recovery is enhanced when his or her loved ones are part of the treatment program and we encourage family members to participate as much as possible.
