Mental Health Treatment for Senior Adults
Wekiva Springs Center has created unique inpatient and outpatient programs designed specifically for senior adults with mental health or dual diagnosis disorders. Our therapeutic setting gives patients the opportunity to thrive in an intimate, age specific and non-confrontational group of peers.
Treatment for senior adults is based on individual circumstances, symptoms and goals. The customized plan of care is determined by the psychiatrist and the treatment team, working together with the patient and their family.
Senior adult programs utilize various specialized interventions in a serene setting. Our primary goal is to promote maximum cognitive, social, physical and emotional development and return patients to daily life as soon as possible.
