Life’s changes can impact us in many different ways. A recent death, medical diagnosis or other challenges associated with aging may trigger a change in mood and disrupt our daily living. That's when our loved ones need the support of specially trained individuals to improve their well-being.
At Easton Hospital, we offer the right combination of psychiatric and medical care to help patients overcome those conditions.
The Behavioral Health Unit at Easton Hospital is a 16-bed inpatient care
unit serving older adults who can benefit from behavioral health
treatment and require a short inpatient stay. Treatment is available for a variety of conditions including but not limited to depression, psychosis, bipolar disorder, anxiety and behavior problems associated with dementia.
