Services

We provide a range of professional psychological services to meet the needs of our clients who are residents in Assisted Living and Independent Living Residences.

Diagnostic Evaluation

to assess the psychosocial well-being of the resident in order to begin the diagnostic process and make decisions regarding an optimal treatment plan to enhance quality of life. This would include chart review, face-to-face interview with client, and consultation with facility staff and family members to review their pertinent observations and concerns.

Individual Psychotherapy

Uses a variety of techniques to target the individual’s mental health needs. For the older adult population research has shown that not only can psychotherapy reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression and other emotional challenges, but also protects against cognitive decline. Achieving and maintaining optimal independence and quality of life is the ultimate goal of every therapy care plan.

Family Therapy

provides family members a forum that encourages open and satisfying communication. Together with the therapist, family members can explore topics such as: healthy ways of communicating, emotional acceptance, relationship strengthening, and conflict resolution, past trauma and grief recovery.

Behavior Management

for residents who are struggling to manage problematic behaviors which create challenges for not only the individual resident but can also impact the community. Such behaviors may include isolative behavior, aggressive behavior, wandering, problems maintaining ADL's or many other maladaptive behaviors. The goal is to enable each resident to function at the highest possible level of independence.

COMMUNITY BENEFITS

A full range of services to meet your residents' psychological needs:

Services to residents in a caring and cost-effective manner, as these services will typically be covered by Medicare Part B.

Documentation conforming to Medicare regulations as well as facility and individual care plans, in a clear and professional manner.

An increase in resident satisfaction; when the sources of problems are explored and identified and the proper, most effective treatments applied, resident’s mood improves, engagement increases, negative behaviors decline, and independence is fostered.

A potential increase in facility referrals; seniors and their families are becoming better informed, more psychologically savvy, and more likely to have had some contact with psychotherapy. This gives them an awareness of the potential benefits of these adjunct services and is reflected in the overall ambiance and appeal of the community.

Quality assurance through the systematic review of our clinicians’ records.

Clinicians are afforded ongoing professional development opportunities in order to maintain high standards and continue to provide state of the art quality care.

A comprehensive range of services to Senior Living Facilities for residents whose adjustment is affected by psychological, behavioral and cognitive difficulties. Current research supports the prevalence of positive outcomes for geriatric populations with the use of psychotherapeutic interventions. This effectiveness is maintained across use of various techniques, and applied to multiple conditions.

PERSONAL BENEFITS

Most older adults experience age-related challenges to their physical and psychological health, often impacting self-esteem, social engagement, and the full range of emotional and mental capacities. While senior living communities are designed to provide an environment and activities to combat these problems, residents can often be difficult to engage. A trained mental health professional can help the resident overcome their reluctance to engage and take full advantage of all the senior living facility has to offer.
