Geriatric and Perioperative Psychiatry Program

The Yale Psychological Medicine Service provides outpatient psychiatry consultation to the Geriatric Medicine team at the Dorothy Adler Geriatric Assessment Center. Referrals for consultation often include cognitive and non-cognitive behavioral symptoms within the context of geriatric syndromes such as dementia and/or delirium. We offer consultations to any elderly patient referred by any primary care and specialty services. Special emphasis is placed on the assessment and care of elderly patients who are about to face a major surgery or have developed neuropsychiatric symptoms after surgery.
