Clinical Programs

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, the loss of lifetime companions or the loss of independence. These health and life changes may often 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,
  • Improving and maintaining cognitive skills and physical health, and
  • Emphasizing healing of body, mind and spirit.

Family Support

Everyone in the family is affected when one suffers mental or emotional illness. If the illness requires hospitalization, it is understandably traumatic for all family members and can be especially so for an elderly person. 

We understand how the stresses and strains in relationships are intensified during this difficult time. We support family members in expressing their feelings and learning new ways to cope with frustrations. 

By participating in their loved one’s treatment process, healthy communication channels can be established, leading to stronger family ties and happier lives.

Level of Care

When a situation becomes a crisis, it can result in the need for inpatient hospitalization. When admitted, the patient receives a thorough physical and mental evaluation to determine the reason for the psychiatric problem.

Our unit provides a supportive environment with 24-hour nursing care. Based on evaluation results, a comprehensive treatment plan is developed by a team of qualified professionals.

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.
