Holistic Psychiatric Care For Seniors

At River Valley Medical Center, we understand the challenges associated with geriatric psychiatry. It's never easy to watch a loved one struggle with the deleterious effects of age, and it may be difficult for families to provide the level of care needed. Our Phases Behavioral Health Unit seeks to provide support and accommodation for patients who require personalized and compassionate mental healthcare. We prioritize maintaining a good quality of life for seniors aged 55 and up, as well as promoting stronger relationships with family and friends.

That Phases May Be Right For Your Loved One

We recommend that you contact us for a free screening if your loved one has been experiencing any of the following:

  • Depression
  • Sudden weight loss/gain
  • Anxiety
  • Agitation
  • Crying spells
  • Withdrawn or antisocial behavior
  • Paranoia or delusions
  • Confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Frequent doctor visits or medical complaints
  • Excessive/lack of sleep
  • Combativeness

Our Philosophy Of Care

Senior patients struggling with psychiatric issues can find respite in our 10-bed Phases Behavioral Health Unit. We help alleviate some of the harsher aspects of aging through holistic but comprehensive geriatric care. We understand that our patients are individuals who deserve to be treated with respect and to live with dignity, which is why we avoid one-size-fits-all approaches to care. 

We tailor our expertise with the wellness of our patients firmly in mind, and aim to address each individual's unique needs. Additionally, we believe that encouraging friends and family members to take an active role in care yields tangible benefits.
