For many years, those who sought help for support and treatment of depression, stress or anxiety had to choose between inpatient hospital care or outpatient services. To help bridge the gap between inpatient and traditional outpatient we developed a two track Adult and Older Adult/Geriatric Intensive Outpatient Program program. Each program is designed to provide intensive treatment while allowing the client to continue with normal daily activities.
In the Adult Intensive Outpatient Program, participants come to our unit from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM a.m. Monday through Thursday. Participants in the Older Adult/Geriatric Intensive Outpatient Program meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from noon to 3:00 PM. Individuals participate in group and individual therapy activities and counseling sessions. In each program, members return to their home environment each day, without interrupting their family life structure. The program is voluntary and length of participation varies according to each individual’s needs.
The program provide intensive individualized treatment while allowing clients at times, to maintain normal home and work schedules. Both the adult and Older Adult/Geriatric Intensive Outpatient Programs provide a full range of services including:
The Older Adult/Geriatric Inpatient Program is a service offered to adults age 55 and older for those suffering with severe emotional life problems. Inpatient Services are provided 24 hours a day 7 days a week in a safe comfortable atmosphere.
Patients who are admitted to the inpatient program have the assurance they are receiving effective, focused treatment. Every patient who comes into the inpatient program has a complete psychiatric evaluation by a psychiatric nurse practitioner in collaboration with a staff psychiatrist. Treatment is individualized for each patient’s needs that may include:
As a patient improves, specific follow-up plans are made with each patient to assure a continuous smooth transition back into their normal environment.
