According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, older adults are at an increased risk for experiencing depression and other mental and emotional struggles. About 80% of older adults have at least one chronic health condition, and 50% have two or more.  Depression and anxiety are more common in those whose physical function and ability to go out are limited.  Healthcare providers often overlook or mistake older adult’s symptoms of depression as natural reactions to illness or life changes due to aging, and therefore not see the emotional and mental symptoms as something to be treated.  Older adults often share this belief too, not realizing they could feel better with the proper treatment plan.

Dr. Mike and his team offer innovative, collaborative, and individually tailored psychological services and training to residents, families, and staff in nursing home and rehabilitation centers, senior assisted living and independent senior living communities, and long-term care facilities.  Services include psychological assessment and evaluation, individual and group psychotherapy, discharge planning, and staff development in the comfort of your facility or residential community. 

We understand we provide treatment to people, not patients, and when you partner with us, you will quickly begin to see positive emotional and behavioral changes within the residents we serve.  Our residential facilities have experienced improved outcomes, which ultimately compliment their facility’s existing credibility and standard of care.  When choosing a behavioral healthcare partner, you need someone who knows how to work with you, your residents, your staff, and other service providers.  After assessing the needs of your facility and the goals and expectations of the facility administrators and leaders, we incorporate and discuss our recommendations and goals to develop a plan of action to help you meet the wellness goals of your clients.  In addition, we offer staff and resident orientations at your facility to help them become aware and familiar with various psychological diagnoses and ways they can best support and serve those impacted.

Improved facility outcomes include:

  • Fewer in-patient hospitalizations
  • Fewer re-hospitalizations
  • Reduction of psychotropic medication
  • Improved documentation, compliance, and survey results
  • Increased resident and staff relationships
  • Maintenance of accreditation

Improved resident outcomes include:

  • Improved coping strategies
  • Decrease in disruptive and agitated behavior
  • Improved emotional regulation
  • Increased resident and family satisfaction
  • Improved interpersonal peer relationships
  • Increased resident retention
