According to national mental health statistics, one out of every five adults aged 55 and older has a diagnosable mental illness. Often the signs of mental illness in older adults are either misdiagnosed or overlooked by family and other treatment providers.
Rivendell’s acute inpatient psychiatric program for seniors addresses the mental health issues of senior life stages. We understand that Seniors come to treatment with both a health and mental history. Psychiatric interventions at Rivendell are delivered in a positive, secure and compassionate environment.
Treatment plans for each patient are based on thorough psychiatric evaluations and mental health assessments. The treatment team focuses on issues that need to be improved before our patients return to their living situation.
