Geriatric Psychiatrist Home Visits

Bikur Cholim offers Holocaust Survivors free-of-charge appointments with a geriatric psychiatrist. Appointments can be set up in the Survivor’s home or in our Bikur Cholim office.  Consultation and medication management are offered, working with the senior’s regular doctor. 

“I was taking medicine to help with sleep, but my cardiologist said it wasn’t good for my heart, and I wasn’t allowed to take it anymore.  My regular doctor said that I needed a good geriatric psychiatrist, who specializes in this kind of thing.  I told my social worker at Bikur Cholim, who made an appointment with Dr. Talavera right away. She is a doll – sweet, patient, and very good. Baruch Hashem, I’m sleeping better now.”
