This nurturing inpatient program is for geriatric patients 65 years and older with persistent or late onset behavioral health illnesses or concerns. Specialized care focuses on assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, prevention, family/community support and education surrounding behavioral health. Our interdisciplinary team, consisting of a psychiatrist, gerontologists, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, licensed nursing assistants, social workers, and recreational therapists, provides a holistic patient centered approach that attends to the mental, physical, and psychosocial aspects of the individual.

The welcoming environment in this dedicated unit consists of 10 private rooms, an activities room, a quiet room, and an outside patio space. Our tranquil location is easily assessable and safe.

At the Ray of Hope, we understand how to effectively address behavioral health needs. The anticipated average length of stay in our unit is 12 days. Each day will offer various therapies and activities to promote healing. Call 603.747.9200 for more information, or email Melissa Hamlett mhamlett@cottagehospital.org

Behavioral Health Caregivers Support Group

Please join us for a monthly community Behavioral Health Caregiver Support Group. This meeting will take place the last Tuesday of every month at Cottage Hospital. Meetings will be held from 6–7pm with light refreshments. Our group is an opportunity to share, interact, and learn from each other in a safe, supportive, open group environment.

These meetings will feature keynote speakers from the Ray of Hope Adult Behavioral Health team. They will discuss current and empirical research reports with evidence-based practices that provide current data which supports family caregivers of adults with chronic physical or cognitive conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke and other illnesses.

Meet our providers.
