CenterPointe’s senior adult program, Silver Lining, is specifically designed to help older adults cope with emotional problems or stressors they may be experiencing in life. For example, many seniors experience severe depression, anxiety, fears, confusion, disorientation, memory loss, medication issues and distress related to decline in health.
We also operate on the belief that the aging process does not eliminate the capacity to learn and change. To the highest potential of the senior adult’s abilities, we encourage insight, initiative and empowerment. Our environment and programming are tailored to meet the specific needs of older adults and we offer a comfortable, homelike atmosphere, with caring compassionate staff to help the senior through each step of their treatment.
Under the direction of the psychiatrist, and with input from the senior adult and family, a multidisciplinary treatment team develops an individualized treatment plan for each senior. The treatment team is typically comprised of a psychiatrist, internal medicine physician, advanced practice nurse or physician assistant, a master’s prepared social worker, a therapeutic recreation therapist, psychiatric nurses, certified nurse assistants, dietician, and mental health technicians. Together, we provide a clinically sophisticated, safe, supportive and responsive treatment environment.
The treatment regimen is designed to meet each senior’s specific needs through a variety of approaches, and may include individual therapy, family therapy, group therapy, therapeutic recreation therapy, and activities of daily living.
