How we help
Reduced independence and other stresses associated with aging can result in significant shifts in the lives of seniors. A sudden or prolonged change in behavior or mood may indicate the presence of or be a precursor to mental illness. Often, highly specialized care designed specifically to address senior or geriatric psychological issues may be required.
24-hour compassionate nursing care is provided. Social workers and therapists provide individual, family, and group therapies. Discharge planning begins at the time of admission, with family involvement.
