Activities Mezzanine floor

> Geriatric consultations for evaluation and orientation
Geriatric consultations provide a rapid, specialised medical opinion, and allow patients to be oriented to the appropriate care pathways. They also offer an opportunity to evaluate patient dependency, arrange check-ups, prepare for transfer to a care home or other institution, and provide a rapid expert opinion in the areas of geriatrics, internal medicine, health education and infectiology using a tool known as the comprehensive geriatric assessment.

> The Memory Centre
The Centre assesses and monitors cognitive disorders, through a multidisciplinary team working with the hospital’s technical support structure and the clinical research unit.

> The Clinical Research Unit
The unit manages clinical trials in geriatric medicine and Alzheimer’s research. It aims to provide local patients with the latest therapeutic advances.

1st floor

> The Cognitive Behavioural Unit for safe and secure treatment
This unit is dedicated to people with orientation difficulties, and/or with behaviour requiring an environment that allows them to move freely while ensuring their safety. The multidisciplinary team is organised to allow both psychological and behavioural issues, as well as geriatric medicine problems, to be treated in a single place and during a single hospital stay.

2nd-3rd-4th-5th floors

> Long Term Care Units for a quality hospital stay
These units host patients who have experienced a significant loss of autonomy and/or are affected by chronic (degenerative neurological disorders, stroke) or non-stabilised illnesses, requiring significant medical and technical care over long periods in hospital.

6th floor

> The Aftercare and Geriatric Rehabilitation Unit for on-going care
Following surgery or hospitalisation for medical problems, patients often require on-going care once acute treatment has been completed, or rehabilitation to allow them to return home. Guided by a personalised care plan, a multidisciplinary team will ensure you are taken care of.

7th floor

The Acute Geriatric Department for a comprehensive approach to elderly patients
The department treats patients arriving from their homes, from A&E, or from other departments at the hospital, for scheduled or unplanned stays. This acute care unit works directly with the mobile geriatric team, other hospital services and home care organisations. Its work is particularly aimed at elderly patients with multiple pathologies, treatment of infectiology and geriatric syndromes, and also neurological and vascular conditions.

> The Mobile Gerontology Unit
The unit develops cross-disciplinary expertise in the geriatric field, offering support to the hospital teams for assessing needs and determining therapeutic strategies.  It relies on the existence of an active geriatric short stay.

What the unit does The RAINIER III Clinical Gerontology Centre is the cornerstone of a vast gerontology project introduced by the Prince’s Government since 2003.

It provides care tailored to meet healthcare needs, including in the area of prevention. The Centre cooperates closely with the Monaco Centre for Gerontological Coordination, the Speranza-Albert II Centre, and the Principality’s retirement homes (the A Qietüdine and Cap Fleuri Residences).
