Unique in Germany
The combination of the two specialist areas of psychiatry and neurology makes the neurogerontopsychiatric day care unit unique in Germany. The range of treatment is aimed at people over 60 years of age who suffer from disorders from one of the two specialist areas. Sometimes the transitions are fluid or the disease affects both cognitive and motor skills. This facility is characterised by training and treatment under one roof and in joint group sessions.
The neurogerontopsychiatric day clinic focuses on treating patients over 60 years of age with Parkinson's disease and depression. However, other neurological or psychological illnesses in later life are also being treated here.
Registration and schedule
The registration for a therapy place requires a medical referral. An appointment for an outpatient preliminary talk should be made by telephone via the secretary's office.
