Clinical psychology

There may be times when you don’t quite feel like yourself.

If you’re a senior who is a patient of War Memorial Hospital and feel that it would be helpful to get in contact with a professional for a psychological assessment and/or therapy service, we can help.

How we can help

  • Providing clinical psychology assessments and treatment for anxiety and depression that may accompany medical conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, dementia, stroke, pain related conditions and carer stress
  • Teaching cognitive-behavioural coping strategies and supporting people caring for a family member with dementia
  • Providing neuropsychological assessment for dementia, cognitive functioning and progression of symptoms
  • Assessing strengths and weaknesses in cognition as an aid to rehabilitation
  • Assessing people referred to the Parkinson’s disease clinic.

Get started

Following assessment by one of our geriatricians, a medical referral will be required. To arrange this, please discuss with your general practitioner.

You can also contact the Northern Network Access Referral Centre (NNARC) for a referral.  Phone: 9369 0400.
