Senior Services

Providing care for seniors for mental health and substance abuse requires a specialized understanding of the unique challenges that seniors face. Mental health challenges are not a normal part of aging and we offer treatment options to help seniors. Our programs are designed to treat seniors (age 55 and older) in a healing environment with a multidisciplinary approach.

Senior Inpatient Program

The CDC estimates that 20% of people age 55 years and older experience some type of mental health concern. Some of these conditions might include anxiety, mood disorders, and severe cognitive impairment.

Our inpatient program for seniors is designed with healing in mind. The program focuses on each patient’s individualized needs and improved functioning. Daily visits with our caring psychiatrist, therapists, and recreational therapists create an environment that promotes healing and wellness for each senior.

Seniors may need inpatient treatment if experiencing signs such as:

  • Memory Loss
  • Mood Disturbances
  • Anxiety and/or Depression
  • Difficulty Coping with Losses and Transitions
  • Behavioral Conditions that Interfere with Care at Home
  • Failure to Thrive
  • Medication Management Challenges

Senior Outpatient Programs

Not all mental health or chemical dependency challenges require inpatient treatment. For less severe issues, our senior outpatient day programs can help.

Our Senior Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) provides medication management and group therapy for seniors with challenges from depression, anxiety, grief, or other mental health conditions. This program can be utilize as a step-down or alternative to more intensive treatment options. Senior PHP is offered Monday through Friday for five hours a day.

Our Senior Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) provides a shorter-term program for seniors with behavioral and/or emotional concerns. This program serves as a step-down to partial hospitalization or an alternative treatment option when patients have their own psychiatrist for medication management. Senior IOP is offered three days a week.
