This is a Regional program for clients of Fraser Health Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health Authority with an established neuropsychiatric diagnosis and treatment plan in place. It is located at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Langara site and offers long-term neuropsychiatry stabilization.
Alder serves clients between the ages of 18 – 64 years who require longer term management of complex behavioural and psychiatric symptoms associated with one or both of the following:
- Neurological disease
- Brain injury that occurred more than six months ago.
The length of stay ranges from 18 months to a length determined by the individual’s specific needs.Our clients have a complexity of psychiatric and behavioural dysfunction requiring the interventions of a robust interdisciplinary team in an appropriately staffed, designated facility that is safe and secure. The clients display severe psychiatric and behavioural disturbances that can be intense and intractable and whose neuropsychiatric disorders exceed a threshold of psychiatric and/or behavioural dysfunction.
Referrals to Alder are made through a centralized intake process in collaboration with Providence Health Care, Vancouver Coastal Health, and Fraser Health Authority.
