Through our group medical practice, the Moak Geriatric Psychiatry Associates, LLC, we provide high quality care to older adults with mental health problems. The Moak Geriatric Psychiatry Information Center attempts to disseminate information about mental health and aging, covering the full range of topics from healthy aging to late-life mental disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders. By navigating around our site, you can learn about our clinical services and policies, learning resources and products, and teaching activities.
Our mission is to improve mental health among older people. We focus on healthy aging, prevention, wellness, and treatment of illness. Our goal is to lessen the impact of mental health problems on quality of life in old age.
Our Care Philosophy
Mental and emotional problems are NOT a normal part of old age. The mission of the Moak Center is to help older people and their families to be as healthy as possible. While not all health problems of old age can be cured, something helpful usually can be done for patients and their families. Old people deserve to have knowledgeable and thoughtful care.
We are a patient-centered practice. We use principles of comprehensive geriatric assessment and management to guide our evaluation and treatment of each unique patient-family situation. Our team approach allows us to address the widest range of mental health problems that older patients face.
More information about our practice, including how to make and appointment, is available on this site. Or call the main office of the Moak Center for Healthy Aging at (508) 366-2106.
The Moak Center For Healthy Aging is a private practice located in Westborough, Massachusetts. We provide team-based consultation, evaluation, and treatment of older adults with a wide range of mental health problems. Often, these problems are related to, or caused by, other common health problems of aging. Out approach is comprehensive and holistic. We consider medical, neurological, psychiatric, functional, social, and family factors in trying to help our patients. Because psychiatric problems in persons with diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and stroke, impact other members of the family, our approach is family oriented.
