Geriatric Wellness

Seniors are often faced with difficult situations — losing a loved one, declining health, loneliness, forgetfulness. As a result, certain behaviors that concern you and your family might develop. Geriatric Wellness care at CMH is available to help.

We admit patients ages 50 and older 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with our medical director’s approval. When a loved one is experiencing or facing challenges, call us.

Geriatric Wellness Services

During each generation of life, we face challenges that can affect our mental and physical health.

For aging adults, these challenges may include declining physical and/or mental capabilities, losing lifetime companions or losing independence. These changes may cause confusion, depression, mood swings, adjustment disorders, psychosis and withdrawal.

Geriatric Care at CMH focuses on:

  • Improving and maintaining the dignity and self-respect of each individual
  • Enhancing and maintaining cognitive skills and physical health
  • Emphasizing healing of body, mind and spirit

Multi-disciplinary Approach

Our multi-disciplinary team assesses each patient. A complete physical exam also helps to determine factors affecting the patient’s behavior. The team develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

Level of Care

When a situation becomes a crisis, inpatient hospitalization may be necessary. Our unit provides a supportive environment with 24-hour nursing care.

 After admission, the patient receives a thorough physical and mental evaluation. A team of qualified professionals develops a comprehensive treatment plan based on the results.

When Does a Loved One Need Help?

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

Family Support

You are not alone in caring for your elderly parent or loved one. We’re here to help you understand what is happening and determine the best course of care.

Mental or emotional illness affects everyone in the family. If the illness requires hospitalization, it is understandably traumatic for all family members. It can be especially traumatic for an elderly person.

We understand how difficult times intensify the stresses and strains in relationships. We support family members in expressing their feelings and learning new ways to cope with frustrations.

Family members participating in their loved one’s treatment process can establish healthy communication channels. This connection leads to stronger family ties and happier lives.
