Our seniors program follows a structured day different from the other units. The program uses decreased stimuli, more time between sessions, and meals in the unit to address the unique needs of our older adults
Age-specific mental health services offered by Old Vineyard Behavioral Health Services includes:
- Relaxation and healthy living groups
- Coping skills to better manage anxiety
- Teaching patients how to reduce stress
- Improving overall nutrition
Our senior services program also includes goal development, arts and crafts, games, group therapy and family collaboration sessions. We have a unit specially equipped for our seniors that includes wheelchair access, call buttons, hand rails and hospital beds for easier mobility.
Most of the patients that enter our Senior Services program are diagnosed with depression, anxiety, or other psychiatric disorders. Due to the age and complex nature of these cases, our professionals often recommend family collaboration to encourage recovery and a patient’s comfort while at our facility.
