Senior Adult Inpatient Treatment
Three Rivers’ inpatient program for seniors includes treatment for clinical depression, Alzheimer’s or dementia-related illnesses, combative or aggressive behaviors,
addictive diseases, and other behavioral health concerns. If your loved one suffers from any of the following symptoms, an evaluation and/or treatment may bring them a better quality of life:
- Irritability, agitation or combativeness
- Loss of appetite
- Decrease in self-care
- Inability to sleep or sleeping too much
- Anxiety or nervousness
- Lack of interest in formerly enjoyable activities
- Talk of death or suicide
- Numerous physical complaints with no apparent cause
- Inappropriate anger or mood swings
- Unexplained sadness
- Alcohol or drug abuse or addiction
Our program is tailored to meet the needs of aging patients and their families. We provide state-of-the-art treatment and loving care. Each patient receives:
- A thorough psychiatric, psychosocial, medical, dietary and activity assessment
- An analysis and adjustment of medications and therapies based on the recommendations of our treatment team
Substance use, abuse and addiction not only affect the young. When faced with the stress and changes with their physical health, older adults may also turn to alcohol and drugs. It is also not uncommon for seniors to find themselves on a multitude of medications for various health issues. This may lend itself to overuse, abuse and addiction.
The staff at Three Rivers understands that it is extremely important for family members to obtain counseling about what to expect from treatment, how to handle their emotional needs, and how to provide the best available care to their loved one.
We can help guide families through some very difficult decisions. When appropriate, we offer referrals to home health agencies, Meals on Wheels, senior centers, adult day care, assisted living facilities and nursing homes to assist the patient with the necessary continuity of care.
Our group activities for seniors include:
Social Work Groups
Interactive therapies such as psychotherapy, art therapy, and sensory therapy accentuate each patient’s skills by challenging them within a group environment, helping our staff to assess their strengths and weaknesses.
Activities that require direction and group efforts that will assist with improving socialization skills. Medication education is done both on an individual and group basis.
Current Events Group
Discuss what is going on locally, statewide and worldwide. These groups often turn into a time to reminisce, discussing a patient’s hometown, families and lives, helping our staff to assess a patient’s current needs and reactions to treatment.
Daily activities that include chair exercises, walking and patio gardening to help improve range of motion and build coordination.
