Geriatric Psychiatrist Joins Platinum Select Nursing to Help Our Elderly Loved Ones Cope with Aging
Platinum Select Nursing is proud to announce our partnership with Dr Arthur Rosecan, a Board Certified Geriatric Psychiatrist. Our goal is to provide services for our clients that ensure they continue to maintain a wonderful quality of life.
When our family members become concerned with the behavior of their loved one, we believe that Dr Rosecan can help. Geriatric psychiatrists will sort through the maze of information, including a person’s background and life story. In addition, Dr Rosecam will also compile medical, neurological and surgical history, as well as medications. This helps him determine what is causing the symptoms of concern.
For example; Is a person depressed because he or she is getting forgetful, or is he or she forgetful because they are depressed?
In this instance, it is important to look at whether the depression has been inadequately treated? This holistic approach leads to an accurate diagnosis. Furthermore it helps create a highly individualized treatment plan.
Unlike many other Geriatric psychiatrists, Dr. Rosecam welcomes, (with the permission of the patient), any input from family members. Adult children can give a more complete picture of the patient. In addition, Rosecam believes that every individual is unique. Consequently he believes that one size does not fit all. He enjoys his work and finds that each has a fascinating life story that shapes who they are.
