St. Anthony’s is a Geriatric Psychiatric hospital facility providing short term in-patient care. A newly renovated 22,000 square foot facility, St. Anthony’s is designed for an inpatient psychiatric experience. The 18-19 bed facilities provide smaller, quiet healing spaces, that are so important to recovery.
Our Geriatric Psychiatry Inpatient Services provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for individuals ages 55 and older who are experiencing emotional, cognitive, or behavioral symptoms. These may include memory loss, mood disturbances, anxiety, difficulty coping with losses and transitions, or behavioral conditions that interfere with care at home or in a long-term care setting.
Our Older Adult Program serves the general psychiatric needs of geriatric patients, while the care Program offers specialty care for Dementia including Alzheimer’s disease and other cognitive impairments. Our services by most health insurance providers, our average length of stay is between 7 and 10 days.
Eating well is an important part of our inpatient program. Your food will be prepared in a kitchen onsite in the hospital each day. If the menu for the day isn’t what you prefer, there is an “Always Available” menu. These foods will be prepared especially for you.
There will always be nutritious foods and snacks to satisfy you.
When you want company or a change of pace, read a book around the fireplace, or try the jetted tubs. There is ample space to enjoy visits with friends and family at any time. Our Expressive Therapist will help you with activities or experiences that are of interest to you.
An important part of being in a safe therapeutic environment is the opportunity to practice what you are learning in therapy as it applies to your daily life. The communal spaces provide that space and oversight for you.
Furry friends will visit weekly and bring those smiling faces of theirs to put a smile on yours.

Each patient room is a single room with a fully equipped bathroom and large walk-in shower. Residents can control their own room temperature with an easy to use thermostat.
