When stress becomes too severe for the older person to manage, it usually appears as a change in that person’s behavior. The signs include confusion, depression, or frequent mood swings, increased withdrawal from others and suicidal tendencies.
In many cases, the true cause of these signals may be medically related – and treatable. That is why our Renewal Program addresses both the medical and psychosocial aspects of mental health problems that are unique to the senior community.
Components of the program include:
- Comprehensive medical and psychiatric assessments on admission
- Occupational therapy
- Activity and physical therapy
- Family visitation
- Nutritional counseling
- Extensive discharge planning and follow-up
- Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization Program
Referrals to Renewal may be made by individuals in need of the service, family members, physicians, clergy, community agencies, nursing homes and retirement communities.
