Ventre Medical Associates offers our elderly patients specialized expertise in the field of geriatric psychiatry. We understand the unique needs and challenges facing older adults with mental health conditions. Some of the disorders we commonly treat include late-life depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, memory disorders, and more. The VMA geriatric team specializes in Alzheimer’s and dementia along with the accompanying behavioral disturbances such as agitation, aggression, paranoia, and mood abnormalities. Our focus is on relieving symptoms and helping older patients develop skills to increase their independence and mobility. We achieve this by focusing on proper assessment and diagnosis, management of co-existing conditions, medication adjustment, family education and consultation with other health professionals.
