Skilled hands with a caring touch.
At Senior Lifestyles we offer individualized care in a warm, supportive atmosphere. Our professional team will begin with a very thorough evaluation to help determine what is causing the behavioral and mental changes. We also check for underlying medical conditions. We will then work with the patient, family, and other health professionals to develop a course of treatment. Treatment includes individual meetings with psychiatrists; group therapy with seniors struggling with similar problems; and educational programs. Our nurses, psychiatrists, therapists, and social workers can help with all aspects of a person's life.
Signs and symptoms of behavioral health illnesses include the following:
* Insomnia or too much sleep
* Crying spells
* Poor appetite or overeating
* Disregard for personal appearance
* Thoughts of suicide (If you suspect this, seek help immediately)
* Aggressive/Assaultive behavior
* Forgetfulness or confusion
Sometimes we have a tendency to think that these symptoms are normal for seniors. These symptoms are NOT normal at any age and many seniors see a dramatic improvement from inpatient treatment.
