about silvercare

Who we are

 

SilverCare is a short term, 18-bed behavioral health unit that treats seniors 55 and older who suffer from a psychiatric and/or medical condition.  SilverCare consists of specialized-trained psychiatrists, nurses, counselors, social workers, and physical therapists who are experts in the care of seniors who are psychiatrically ill.

Our special services

you are not alone

To ensure access and excellent care, we offer:

  • 24/7 ability to determine the appropriate level of care

  • Management of a patient's secondary medical needs

  • Group Therapy

  • Family Therapy

  • Individual Therapy

Patients begin the program with daily group therapy or as determined by program psychiatrist; services will increase or decrease based on the response to treatment. The process begins by calling for a confidential screening with one of our qualified clinicians.

As we live longer, seniors experience higher incidences of dementia, depression, and anxiety. It is not uncommon. You are not alone, and SilverCare can help.

Depression and other emotional illnesses are significant problems for seniors.

  • National statistics show that one out of every four older adults suffers from serious emotional difficulties related to aging.

  • Depressed older adults have the highest risk of suicide in our society.

  • 19 million people suffer from depression at some point in their lives. Of these, 80-90% can be treated.
