Outpatient Senior Behavioral Health Care

We provide behavioral health counseling services for older patients facing mental health issues, including anxiety and depression.

Grady Memory Clinic

Grady is a founding member of Georgia Memory Net, a statewide program dedicated to the treatment of memory problems and the early diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. The clinic conducts evaluations and makes referrals to primary care physicians who can provide appropriate ongoing care.

Geriatric Inpatient Consultations

We provide specialized geriatric consultations for frail older adults with complex, life-threatening, or chronic conditions, including dementia, delirium, and persistent pain. Our program draws on resources within Grady to enhance hospital care and help to smooth the transition to subsequent care at home or in other care settings.

Grady Geriatric Center

The center provides care for patients who are at least 75 years old and experiencing memory loss.

Annual Wellness Visits

In addition to getting regular physicals and screenings, every senior should take the time to schedule an annual wellness visit with their primary care provider.

Medicare covers this yearly appointment to give you the opportunity to collaborate with your providers on a preventive care plan for the coming year. This isn’t the same thing as a head-to-toe physical exam, but the annual wellness visit is an important part of senior health care.

Ongoing Support

When you become a patient at Grady, you have access to on-site services like our diagnostic labs, pharmacies, rehabilitation and therapy, and imaging, which are available at Grady and its neighborhood health centers. You also have access to all of Grady’s total wellness classes aimed at helping you to quit smoking, eat healthier, and live longer. And, we provide emotional support if you are dealing with addiction, anxiety, and depression.
