Statistics show that mental illness is far more common in older adults than in the younger population, with more than 6.5 million of the 35 million Americans over 65 suffering from depression alone. The Senior Adult Program at St. Elizabeth Edgewood offers inpatient treatment for older adults whose lives have been turned upside down by the destructive forces of severe depression, advancing dementia and other mental illnesses.
Our compassionate professionals will help guide your loved one back into the rhythm of life with an individualized treatment plan featuring recreational therapy, psychiatric and medical treatment, and an array of other services.
In the Senior Adult Program, patients’ loved ones play a big part in their continued health. Our program staff are committed to working closely with each patient’s loved ones to ensure they get the care they need once they leave the hospital.
