BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES
We provide a complete range of services to address the behavioral health needs of senior living residents.
In order to determine the best treatment plant to improve your residents’ quality of life, we assess their psychosocial well-being.
Individualized Care Plans
We use a variety of techniques to address a patient’s mental health needs. Researchers have shown that psychotherapy can help senior citizens reduce their anxiety and depression symptoms, as well as protect them from cognitive decline.
We create an environment where open communication is encourages among family members. Efforts are made by our therapists to educate family members about topics such as healthy communication, emotional acceptance, relationship strengthening, conflict resolution, trauma treatment, and grief management.
Our team helps residents with problematic behaviors that affect them and the entire senior community. These behaviors include isolation, aggression, wandering, difficulty with ADLs, and other maladaptive ways of coping.
Our staff has been trained to understand the unique needs of residents with behavioral health needs, so they can better support them.
Our behavioral health services benefit your community through the following ways:
- To provide your residents with high-quality care and ensure a cost-effective approach, we collaborate with the primary care physician.
- A comprehensive treatment plan is developed after identifying the underlying concerns. As a result, your residents mood improves, their engagement increases, negative behaviors decline, and independence is enhanced.
- Our service potentially increases community referrals. The more seniors and their families are notified about the opportunities provided by your community, the more they are able to see the benefits, which reflect the overall ambiance and appeal of your community.
- Quality services are assured through the systematic review of our clinicians’ patient records.
- We provide senior living communities with a comprehensive range of services to assist residents with psychological, behavioral, and cognitive difficulties that can develop as they adjust to their new environment.
