Senior Behavioral Health
Our Senior Behavioral Health Unit consists of 12 licensed psychiatric beds to treat the mental health conditions of both male and female patients who are age 55 and older. Our intensive treatment services provide a safe, comfortable atmosphere for patients requiring close supervision, protection, and assistance with acute crisis management and symptom control. Patients requiring long term psychiatric management will be referred by the interdisciplinary team to the appropriate level of care after careful assessment and evaluation.
The program is designed to support aging adults, approximately 55+ years and older, who are experiencing acute symptoms of psychiatric disorders or emotional illness. Patients may also be struggling with mental health disorders, and may present with the following:
- Suicidal Thoughts/Attempts
- Severe Depression
- Prolonged Grief or Sadness
- Hallucinations or delusions
- Agitation or inappropriate verbal, vocal or motor activity
- Sudden change in cognitive functioning
- Disordered Thinking
- Aggressive Behaviors
- Sundown Syndrome with severe disruptions of activities of daily living
- Medication Noncompliance
Our caring and compassionate medical professionals are here around the clock to provide patients with an intensive therapeutic environment which promotes the stabilization of an acute psychiatric crisis. We aim to provide short term treatment options that assist patients and their families in identifying community resources, enhancing coping skills, transitioning care to an outpatient setting, and helping each patient assume increased responsibility for their own life. We also provide each patient with physical, physiological, and social assessments throughout the treatment process so that we can implement an individualized treatment plan for each patient based on their needs.
We are here for you and your loved ones during the most difficult times in life. Call us today at 706-282-4234 to talk to a caring and compassionate admissions specialist, who will talk to you about your situation and answer any questions you may have.
