The neurogerontopsychiatric day care clinic

The neurogerontopsychiatric day care clinic is a treatment facility for elderly people with neuropsychiatric diseases, such as Parkinson's disease or depression. The interdisciplinary facility combines the disciplines of psychiatry and neurology. It thus offers a closely interlinked and comprehensive therapy for psychological and neurological diseases.

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.

Therapeutic spectrum

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.

The day care treatment takes place Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 16:00. Depending on the type and severity of the disorder, treatment lasts between two and six weeks.
