Senior Mental Health and Substance Abuse Treatment Program

Senior Mental Health

Overview

At the Behavioral Hospital of Bellaire, we understand that sometimes our senior loved ones may suffer from emotional and psychological distresses. These may include anxiety, depression, dementia and other psychiatric disorders due to separate medical conditions.

The Senior Behavioral Health Unit at Behavioral Hospital of Bellaire provides specialized care for older adults. In addition to patients being cared for by a gerontologist and trained psychiatrist, an internist also works with patients to monitor any medical or physical conditions.

Services offered include:

  • A specialized team of psychiatric nurses, nursing assistants, social workers and activity therapists
  • Thorough evaluation of behavioral and medical needs by highly trained staff
  • Holistic individualized treatment plan that focuses on behavioral, physical, psychological, spiritual, emotional, social needs and a continuation of care after discharge
