A special wellness program for senior adults…

Seniors are often faced with difficult situations — the loss of a loved one, declining health, loneliness, forgetfulness…. As a result, certain behaviors might develop that concern you and your family. Parkview Geriatric Wellness Center is here to help.

Our multi-disciplinary team provides an assessment and an individualized treatment plan for each patient that aims to help the patient cope with whatever situation they might be facing. A complete physical exam is also provided to evaluate the contributory factors affecting the patient’s behavior. Other services available include a psychiatric evaluation and medication, if necessary; psychological testing; nursing services; family, group and individual therapy; activity, physical and occupational therapy; social services support; and a complete nutritional assessment.

Certain behaviors may indicate their need for special assistance:
  • Anxiety
  • Apathy
  • Easily agitated
  • Forgetful or confused
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Hallucinations
  • Loss of interest in routine activities
  • Not sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Paranoid thoughts or increased suspicions
  • Persistent sadness
  • Personal hygiene changes
  • Personality changes
  • Recurrent thoughts of death
  • Unexplained loss of energy
  • Weight loss or gain

Patients ages 55 and older can be admitted directly to our program 24-hours a day, seven days a week, upon the approval of our medical director. When a loved one is experiencing or facing challenges, call us.
