Geropsychiatric Unit (GPU)

Geropsychiatry is a specialized field of psychiatry that considers the unique needs of adults aged 64 and above.

About Our Department

Elliot Hospital was the first in New Hampshire to offer inpatient treatment and has the largest geropsychiatric unit in the state. The Geropsychiatric Unit can also take involuntary emergency admissions as a state-certified designated receiving facility (DRF).

The Geropsychiatric Unit offers multidisciplinary services for older adults with acute psychiatric problems. Utilizing a team that provides medical, emotional, and geriatric psychiatric care, the patient and family are supported as they strive to return to an optimal level of independence and functioning.


Visiting hours are limited to promote a therapeutic environment with groups run by occupational therapy and nursing staff.

Regular Visiting Hours are from 1pm-2pm and 6pm-7pm, seven days per week.
